This work was introduced and first headed by Donna Summerhayes, CM, RN (Ret.). This Ministry emphasizes the wholeness of body, mind and spirit. Donna was succeeded by Carol Bonney, RN (Ret.), who was recently succeeded by Mary White, RN. Another spin-off programme that has resulted is a ministry to people confined to wheelchairs. Several of them are now church members.
