Free Health Screenings
Through the year, we enlist through Cornell University, some 7-9 Physicians Assistants to offer Health Fairs, during which we offer hypertension screening, Complete Blood Counts (CBCs), blood sugar tests, and numerous other well being barometers. Our goal is to have a healthy body as well as soul.
We share these fairs with parishes in our deanery, like St. Martin's, et al.
We regularly announce these Fairs in the Sunday bulletin.
To promote more wholesome environments, our Parish offers FREE Yoga classes to anyone from the church. All levels are offered from beginner to expert level. Yva Figueroa is the head instructor and she boasts many years of experience.
In addition to Yoga, we offer free dance lessons for our people in Zumba and Salsa and specials sessions on Meditation.
AZTEC GROUP. Our faith community's has long been solicitous for the lepers of today, like the alcoholics among us. We have three Alcoholics Anonymous groups that meet every week. Come as you need. Call us to discover dates and news.
For the past thirty years, we have been the host site for a seasonal men's shelter through CAMBA. We host some dozen men from February to July, offering them a home-made supper and safe place to sleep. This great effort for the homeless devolves from great interparrochial ecumenical efforts from Emmanuel Baptist Church, Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church and Queen of All Saints Church.
