Parish Nursing

Promoting Good Digestive Health

The Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada informs us
that more than 20 million Canadians experience some form of digestive problem.

olorectal cancer is
the second leading cause of cancer death in the country
this type of cancer is preventable.
If it is detected early, 90 per cent of diagnosed cases can be cured.

Let’s look at some of the Prevention Basics.

     Eat a healthy balanced diet which includes a variety of fruits and vegetable
and whole grains and lean protein and milk products.
Drink a lot of water six to eight glasses per day is a good starting point.

     Eat fibre rich foods which includes: whole grains, vegetables and fruits, dried fruits and seeds.

     Use moderation when consuming caffeinated beverages, and alcoholic drinks.

     If you are over fifty years of age, have a family history of colorectal cancer or other genetic risk factors, get screened regularly.

     For more information and more details look at the website: colorectalcancercanada.com

New Parish Nurse Joins the
Tri-Congregational Parish Nursing Ministry

March 2016

Margaret Black (right), who began the Tri-Congregational
Parish Nursing Ministry in 2001, welcomes our new associate,
Maureen McNeish (left), RN, BScN. Maureen is very well
qualified for this position as she has completed all three levels
of the InterChurch Health Ministries Parish Nursing Program.
In addition she has a post-graduate certificate in Mental Health Nursing
from the Canadian Nurses’ Association. Maureen has 3 years
experience as a parish nurse at both an Anglican and a
Presbyterian church in Toronto, so clearly God has prepared
her well for the Tri-Congregational Churches! Marg and
Maureen, who have complementary areas of expertise,
will be sharing the Parish Nursing pastoral ministry to
provide the best care for all clients.

As well as volunteering with the Tri-Congregational Parish
Nursing Ministry, Maureen works full time as a home care
nurse contracted through the Community Care Access Centre.
She is also married with two teenage children. She and her
family have recently moved into our neighbourhood from
downtown Toronto.

We are blessed indeed to have her on our team.
Please welcome her in true Tri-Congregational Churches fashion.
