Health is a key ministry at Holy Sacrament, partly because several members of the church are active and/or retired medical and health professionals. The Church holds every year, a free Health and Safety Fair, organized by the Health Committee, as an outreach program to the South Florida community. Health organizations including hospitals, medical agencies, private and specialty practices, support our Fair by offering their professional services through basic health screenings, dental hygiene, pediatric health screening, and providing health education on a wide number of medical topics and issues, among other areas. Every year, hundreds of persons benefit from the services offered through our Health Fair.
In addition to the Health Fair, the group of medical professionals also engage in a number of health-related activities on a continuing basis throughout the year. These include:
- Health Education and Wellness Promotion Seminars
- Monthly Blood Pressure Screening
- Home Care Visitation
- Hospital Visitation/Respite Services
- Medical Alert Teams [On Call during worship services and events
And this year we will feature a free seminar on the current status of Immigration and Social Justice in America. Our speaker will be immigration attorney Stefan McHardy, Esq. of DSA Legal Group.
