St. Thomas Lutheran Church

Dear Church Family,


I am an official Evangelical Lutheran Parrish Nurse Association (ELPNA) member! I received my membership card this month. May is American Stroke Awareness month promoted by the National Stroke Association. We will be having West Coast University students visit on May 20th to provide blood pressure screenings and stroke information. We will meet in the fellowship hall after service.


  • Arthritis Awareness ​ Month
  • Better Hearing and Speech Month
  • National Celiac Disease Awareness Month
  • Clean Air Month
  • Lupus Awareness Month
  • Mental Health Month
  • Older Americans Month
  • Healthy Vision Month
  • Food Allergy Awareness Week
  • National Women’s Health Week


May 22nd to 28th is also National Hurricane Preparedness Week. Plan early to pack an emergency box and buy a case of water before the cost is $20. Stock up and replace batteries in all flashlights and lanterns.


If anyone has questions about the many disease awareness programs in May, please call or see me after church on Sunday in the fellowship hall.


God bless and good health to all.


Your friend in Christ,


Yvette Salas RN, BSN
