First Down with Fr. Eric (February 2, 2020)

Dear Friends,

We are so blessed to have a Parish Nurse on our staff, Sandy Meyers. She has many years of experience in her field, as well as being an instructor. Parishioners do work on their spiritual well being, but that goes hand in hand with our emotional and mental health.

An area of great service is the Parish Nurse Ministry. In this ministry nurses step forward when an emergency happens here during a Mass or event. This really is important for everyone, especially the person experiencing the emergency. We are asking nurses to contact Sandy at the Parish Office at 480-998-3843 or smeyers(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)stpatcc.org to learn more about becoming a part of the Parish Nurse Ministry.

Sandy also oversees the outreach to our seniors and, grief support groups, and once a year we hold a Behavioral Health Conference that hosts speakers and leaders of multiple health organizations to help understand mental health. With our new house about to open, we can expect even more outreach and support to the ministry of well being.

Parishioners, thank you for your support to the Beyond Sunday Capital Campaign. This allows us to create a space at the new house to help the entire Scottsdale community and beyond. Soon, when our house opens, we can all see the fruits of our giving, praying and serving.

Peace in Christ,

Fr. Eric
