Congratulations to the Catholic Nurses in the Diocese of Lansing for establishing a local council.  Through the leadership of Cynthia DL Thelen, MSN, LNHA, BSN, RN and a determined steering committee, these Nurses have worked diligently throughout the pandemic to develop the Diocese of Lansing Council of Catholic Nurses.

The local council is under the spiritual direction of Fr. Tim Nelson.  Monthly meetings are scheduled for the 1st Wednesday of every month in Jackson with a focus on nursing ethics, professional formation, and fellowship.

Join with them in celebration at their inaugural Mass on Wednesday, May 5th, 2021 (nurses’ week) at 6:00pm at St. Mary Star of the Sea Parish in Jackson, Michigan.
