Health Ministry

The Health Ministry Team meets monthly and encompasses a number of services available to members of the Catholic Community of Pettis County.

The Health Ministry office, located in the Sacred Heart Parish Center is open every Thursday from 10am until noon. If you have a health concern or would like to get your blood pressure checked, stop by and have them assist you.

One the second weekend of the month, they provide blood pressure screenings after all Masses.

Once a month (excluding the summer months) the team provide a “healthy luncheon” are share recipes and ideas to stay healthy no matter what your age may be.

The Bereavement Ministry team provides a basket to each family who has lost a loved, given to them during the funeral planning process. Then a team member is assigned to each family to reach out to them through the first year after the loved one has passed.

Prayer Shawls are provided to anyone who is suffering from an illness or is elderly. If you would like to receive one or provide one to someone, please call the Sacred Heart parish office at 660-827-2311.

Another service we are happy to provide are meals to new parents. If you are interested in receiving meals after the birth of your child, please contact Camillie Bawcom at 404-918-5822
