Parish Nursing Ministry
The Parish Nurse is a catalyst for an intentional ministry of health, healing and wholeness at St James. This ministry serves those who see the Cathedral as their primary place of worship and those who look to the Cathedral for help in times of need. It includes parishioners, staff, and community partners. The church, as a place where we come together, is a setting for mutual support, health promotion, education, and disease prevention. This connection between health and faith has roots in the Gospel, the history of the Church, and the nursing profession. As a member of the ministerial team, the Parish Nurse melds the healing resources of our faith with the professional knowledge and skills of a nurse. Health, healing, and wholeness, require integration of the physical, psychological, social, emotional, and spiritual dimensions.
The Parish Nurse: Lanadee Lampman, R.N.
For brief personal contact, Lanadee attends both Sunday morning services and coffee hours (9:00am & 11:00am). You may also contact Lanadee through the office. Office or home visits can be arranged.
The Health Council
Health Council Vision: Our Ministry is to be guided by healthy and healing relationships with God, family, our faith community, and creation.
Health Council Mission: Within the Cathedral community, our ministry includes consideration for the care of the sick, promotion of health and healing, and support of the Parish Nurse role. The ministry is centred within a Christian experience of God’s healing power and seeks harmony and wholeness for the individual and community.
At Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving, the lay visitors deliver flowers and plants from the Cathedral to those who are homebound, living in long-term care facilities, or in hospital.
Please contact any of the clergy, or parish nurse Lanadee Lampman to share names of anyone who might benefit from this ministry or to volunteer to participate.
