• Faith and Health Connected: Toolkit

  • This toolkit is designed to give local faith and community leaders a menu of opportunities to health and wellness from a spiritual perspective. This resource is not by any means exhaustive. Use this to review the kinds of partnerships that can be formed in the areas that are most important to your local congregation or organization. The staff at Penrose - St. Francis Mission and Ministry stands ready to support your local group in forming the partnerships described in this packet and to answer any questions you have about how to move forward.
