Parish Nursing in the English District

Sue Neff, Parish Nurse

Hello and greetings!

My name is Susan Neff and I serve as the district representative for Parish Nursing in the LCMS – English District. For those of you who are not familiar with Parish Nursing, I’d like to give you an overview what I do, and share some benefits of having a parish nurse in your congregation.

How your congregation can serve those who serve

Did you know that the LCMS provides care to our military families in two ways?

First, we provide chaplains to our Armed Forces. God’s good gifts are given to His children who wear our country’s uniform – and their families throughout the world – by military chaplains.
