The Health Ministry at Guardian Angels is committed to enhancing our community’s quality of life by helping to improve the health awareness of our congregation. We emphasize wellness and preventive medicine in a safe, spiritual environment while empowering people of our congregation to take control of their own health care. We plan various educational events throughout the year for the congregation, school, and community to attend.
We work in collaboration with Henry Ford Health System’s Faith Community Nursing Network and our lead Faith Community Nurse, Shawn Bennis, MSN, RN, FCN.
If you have questions or are interested in being part of this ministry, please contact the parish office by calling 248 588 1222 or email Shawn directly at email@example.com. No health care experience is necessary; just an open heart to helping others!
