Advance care planning
Advance care planning is talking to your loved ones about what you would like your health care choices to be if a time comes when you are unable to speak for yourself. After you have this conversation, you may write down your wishes in a document called a health care directive. This document allows you to:
- Give instructions about the type of medical care you wish to receive or not to receive
- Choose a person(s), called a health care agent(s), to make medical decisions for you if you are unable to communicate
- Your parish nurses are here to help with the process.

A melding of both nursing and ministry, our parish nurse ministry serves individuals and families through health education and resources that promote spiritual maturity. The goal? Wellness in body, mind and spirit.
Our parish nurses work together in providing health education and congregational care. Could you benefit from parish-nursing services? Contact Cindy Engelkes by e-mail or at 763.231.2964.
Count on our prayer and presence if you or a loved one is hospitalized. Please contact Cindy Engelkes by e-mail or at 763.231.2964 or call the church office at 763.545.5659 to request a visit. Remember, hospitals no longer notify us when our members are admitted for care.
