Home Ministry Parish Life Parish Health
We often associate Easter with the season of spring and signs of new life in nature, What about signs of new life in you? Are you refreshing your body with rest and nutrition? Are you renewing habits of health and hope? Are you reviving your faith experience through Bible reading and the sacraments? These are all ways of going deeper into understanding what health and wholeness mean for our lives.

Stress contributes to many physical problems, including heart disease, stroke and obesity. Recognizing the effect of stress helps us to manage it better. Being resilient does not mean that we never feel stressed or face adverse conditions, but if we work on healthy habits when we are not stressed, they will serve us well when the tough times come. In small steps, we can move from less satisfying ways of thinking to more positive thoughts.
