St. Thomas a'Becket requests that at least one professional from the medical community notify the ushers of their presence at each Mass in case an emergency should arise. You can sign in at the desk by Father Tom's office with the Ushers and Eucharistic Ministers. Your name and location in church is all that is required so you can be contacted if needed.
WHO WE ARE

The responsibilities of the Parish Nurses include:
Volunteer for blood pressures and health teaching at Knights of Columbus Pancake Breakfasts, be available for the Parish Picnic, do flu vaccines and other events.
Do blood pressure checks at monthly STA-50 meetings.
Pray for the parish and the team on the first Sunday of every month.
Help survey the health needs of the community.
Provide information and coordinate resources to meet needs.
Educate and counsel members with health related concerns.
Provide training workshops and health experts to address health issues.
Promote wellness and uphold individuals' privacy of medical information.
