The Faith Community Nursing Ministry of Catholic Charities of Central and Northern Missouri extends the healing ministry of Jesus Christ throughout several counties in the Diocese of Jefferson City with the expectation of extending into all 38 counties in the future.
Trained Faith Community Nurses, with the support of their pastor, use a holistic approach for care by addressing the spiritual, emotional and physical well-being of members within the congregation while respecting their individual faith beliefs and practices.
Our Faith Community Nurses appreciate that all persons are sacred and must be treated with compassion, respect, and dignity.
Primary roles of the Faith Community Nurse include:
- Integrator of health and faith
- Health educator, counselor, and advocate
- Utilizing existing agencies with appropriate referrals
