Parish Nurse Newsletter: Fall 2016

Fall 2016: “Tender loving care” is the hallmark of the art of nursing. LCMS parish nurses are no different except we provide TLCC — tender loving Christian care.

This issue of the Parish Nurse Newsletter highlights compassion and caregiving provided through support groups and many other ways.

The newsletter also includes other important information:

  • A recap of the 24th annual Conference for Parish Nursing and Congregational Health Ministries, which was held May 25-26 at Concordia University Wisconsin;
  • Information about Cancer Companions, a nine-week ministry designed to help those touched by a cancer diagnosis;
  • The importance of parish nurses being visible and available; and
  • Activities and resources for parish nurses serving across the globe.
