Health Ministry Newsletter-  Everyone experiences illness in life. Most of these are short-term episodic illnesses. They go away once they are treated and you return to your normal life. However, there are also illnesses that occur that are considered chronic. In 2019, I would like to focus on specific chronic disorders: Anxiety, Addiction, Arthritis to name a few. I would appreciate your input on which topics would be most helpful. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey handed out on Sunday morning. Or if you would like to start now,  click here.  The results will be confidentially emailed to the Prince of Peace office. I am not asking for any personal identification, just the topics that interest you.
