Topic: Health Ministry in the Parish
Speaker: Ginny Wagenseller
Parish/Organization: Christ & Holy Trinity, Westport
With a background in pediatric and public health nursing, I was drawn 10 years ago to engage in parish nursing and health ministry. Orientation to this took place at Virginia Theological Seminary through Episcopal Health Ministries. Continued networking and education are through St. Vincent's Medical Center Parish Nurse Program in Bridgeport.
I serve on the staff as Parish Nurse at Christ & Holy Trinity in Westport, Conn., where my primary focus is on pastoral care, wellness promotion, patient advocacy. As Diocesan Liaison to Connecticut and Regional Representative to Province 1 of Episcopal Health Ministries, I maintain contact with the growing interest in health ministry in a variety of different types of congregations.
