Parish Nurse Program

Caring for Local Parishioners

CMC's Parish Nurse Program is a collaboration between local faith congregations and Catholic Medical Center. The Parish Nurse Program helps local faith communities to provide spiritual, psychological, and social care to their members and neighborhoods. Members of our community have access to a registered nurse for health and wellness consultations at several local churches through CMC’s Parish Nurse Program. 

The Program offers services many local faith communities in the Greater Manchester area, to people of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, and religious affiliations. Parish nurses promote wellness by addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of members. Our registrered nurses (RNs) offer health and wellness consultations, and many churches partner with us to host wellness programs.
