Fifth Annual Walk For Parish Nursing: InterChurch Health Ministries of Saskatchewan invites you to participate in the annual fundraising and awareness walk in support of parish nurses on Sat, May 10th at 9:30 am, beginning and ending at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. The walk will follow the paved Meewasin Valley Trail which follows the scenic South Saskatchewan River through the heart of Saskatoon. Raise support for Parish Nursing and start your day with healthy activity in beautiful surroundings with good friends. Participants may walk the entire 4 km route or choose to shorten their walk if they wish. The trail is wheelchair accessible. Pledge forms are available on the entranceway table.

This is the group that is providing training and support for our Pastoral Care Nurse, Laura Van Loon, as well as educational opportunities for members of our Pastoral Care Committee and others who are interested.
