Faith Community Health

The Faith Community Health Team, formerly known as the Parish Nurses and Health Cabinet, is a faith based group of St Joseph Parish members who are either health care or non-health care professionals dedicated to promoting and addressing health and health issues which impact our parish. Co-coordinators are Karen McWilliams and Karen Roode. Team members are available from 8:00am to 8:00pm Monday through Friday excluding holidays.  Meetings are held the fourth (4th) Wednesday of each month except June, July, November, and December.  If you would like more information or would like to join the group, please call the parish office at 563-659-3514.
