A message from the President's Desk...
Forming a community is the quest of all humankind. Humans are, by design, social beings who seek happiness, joy and love. A community is a system that is made up of a diversity of individuals, families and friends who make a community function. A community strives to provide opportunities and challenges for its members; it supports the members’ needs and encourages the sharing of ideas, goods, talents, and gifts for the good of the whole. In times of strife, a community reaches out to help deal with the emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual needs of the members. A community celebrates the good and acknowledges the need to seek the truth. Worldviews may differ among the members of a community which enrich the dialogue; but respect is always paramount. This year, the Parish Nurse Ministries of New York, Inc. will be celebrating 15 years of community building and growth. To all of the members, present and past, I wish to congratulate you for your willingness to respond our organization and your own faith community’s needs. And to all who support our work, I offer humble words of gratitude.

After participating in the general membership gathering where the work of SENIOR WISHES was presented, our member, Maureen Daley approached her employer, Independent Health Association, with an idea for a fund raiser. In the end, $1,554.33 was raised for this not for profit community organization. Kudos, Maureen.
