The Parish Nurse Group is a part time volunteer group made up of parishioners and parish nurses with the goal of providing a healthy and safe worship environment and worship community. Parish nurses are available for consultation to parishioners. While they do not provide hands on nursing care, they can be contacted for assistance with finding resources to assist in care or needed health information.
If you would like to connect with a Parish Nurse, please call 288-8238 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Parish Nurse's Office is located in the north entrance and is staffed by a volunteer on the 3rd Sunday of each month.
The St. Pius X Parish Nurses currently engage in the following activities:

The Parish Nurse Group has sponsored a yearly “Ladies Night Out” dinner and health education program. The nurses provided advice to the parish related to safe food handling during parish events involving food preparation. Flu shots at the church have been organized annually by the nurses.
Parishioners with an interest in health care are always welcome to join the Parish Nurse Group. Formal background in a health related field is helpful but is not required. Contact the Parish Office at 288-8238.
