Federal regulations (HIPAA) regarding security and privacy of patients are now being implemented by hospitals which affect the notification of clergy when members are patients in the hospital. Unless you specifically tell the hospital that you wish your church or pastor to be notified, they will not let us know. Please let the hospital personnel know that you want your church or pastor notified, or ask a friend or family member to notify us.
This is the only sure way for us to know that you are hospitalized.
Keeping You Informed: If you have recently moved, changed your phone number, your email address, or marital status please give your new info to the church office. Email is the quickest and most efficient way for us to keep you informed. If you have not given us your email address yet, please do so. Thank you.
Help the Iowa LWML get cash for your trash! Iowa Districts East and West will be the hosts for the LWML national convention to be held in Des Moines in 2015. The Iowa LWML has initiated an electronics recycling program to help defray costs for hosting the convention. See the poster on the portable bulletin board to learn about what types of printer cartridges and other electronics are being accepted. Recyclables may be placed in the bottom drawer of the built-in file cabinet in the Parish Nurse's office. (The drawer is clearly marked!)
Thanks for your help and support.
