postheadericon Parish Nursing

Parish Nursing is a joint ministry of Bathurst and Bloor Street United Churches. It is based on the belief that spiritual health is inextricably linked to physical, mental and social well-being. The church is where this relationship can be explored and supported within the life and work of the faith community.
