Health & Care Ministries

Blood Pressure Screenings

Monthly blood pressure screening is offered to St. John’s parishioners on most weekends on the fourth Sundays of the month after all Masses throughout the year. Additional healthcare professionals are needed to supplement our current crew of nurses and doctors for these monthly screenings to continue. Consider sharing your skills by volunteering! Commitment is flexible.

Parishioners are requested to wear a mask while having blood pressure screening.
