The Health Ministry Team and parishioners of St. Philip Neri gathered at Regional Park in Midwest City for a healthy kick start to their physical and spiritual development. The program is designed by Parish Community Nurse, Angie Tomlinson, R.N. stressing wholistic health, “Wholistic health is a wellness approach that addresses the body, mind, and spirit or the physical, emotional/mental and spiritual aspects of an individual. Using the faith community in exercise, praying, and support allows for such spiritual and physical growth.”
Every participant not only receives a t-shirt ($8), but a booklet containing scripture study and reflection for each week. The goal is that everyone forms their own walking groups and continues the weekly routine throughout the course of a year.
Currently groups are meeting at the following places and times:
Regional Park Rotary Pavilion: Sunday 7:15pm, Wednesday 7:30am, Thursday 7:30am and 5:30pm, Friday 7:30am
Midwest City Dog Park: Tuesday 9:00am, Thursday 9:00am, Saturday 9:00am
Please contact Angie Tomlinson, R.N. if you are interested in joining. It is not too late to PRAY WALK TALK:
