Why Is CPR Important? CPR Saves Lives!

April 27, 2017

Holy Family’s Health and Wellness Ministry is sponsoring its annual CPR Class.  Each year over 350,000 out of hospital cardiac arrests occur in the U.S.  Statistics prove that if more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved.  That life could be someone you know - a child, spouse, parent, friend or a stranger.  Cardiac arrests frequently happen at home but as we know can happen anywhere.  By knowing CPR and what actions to take, it can only help. 

Date:  Thursday, April 27 – 9 am to 12 noon   Holy Family Parish Hall

$15 fee. Reference book included.  Class size limited to 16

 

The Family and Friends CPR Program through the American Heart Association will be taught by certified CPR instructors.  The use of a video, instruction, demonstration and practice on mannequins (adult and infant) will be provided.  NO TESTING!  No certification but fundamental learning skills on how to perform CPR will be taught for the adult, child and infant.  What to do if someone is choking will also be demonstrated.  A demonstration on the use of an AED (Automated External Defibrillator) will also be provided. (An AED is provided at each parish church site and Sacred Heart School.  Check Holy Family’s Health & Wellness online site for AED locations.)

Registration is required to Erin Cobb at Holy Family 921-0580 Ext. 139.  Checks may be made out to Holy Family and sent to Holy Family Catholic Community, 271 Fourth Street Way, Fond du Lac, 54937 to the attention of Erin Cobb.

Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when electrical impulses in the heart become rapid or chaotic, which causes the heart to suddenly stop beating.  We hear stories of how CPR maintained circulation and breathing until emergency medical help was able to arrive to further assist.  New parents, adults, grandparents, if you need to learn CPR or need a refresher, please call today to register for this valuable life-saving opportunity.

National Day Of Prayer

May 4, 2017

The National Day of Prayer is not just a vital part of America’s heritage, but is as relevant and critical today as it was at the first call by our Continental Congress in 1775. Established in public law by a joint resolution of Congress signed by President Truman in 1952, then amended under the 100th Congress and President Reagan in 1988 to designate the day, it states that “The President shall issue each year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a National Day of Prayer on which the people of the United States may turn to God in prayer and meditation at churches, in groups and as individuals.”

Holy Family will be joining other area churches and schools in prayer at Veterans Park on Thursday, May 4, beginning at 6:00 am for Sunrise Prayer, followed by a public reading from the Bible throughout the day, until the National Day Of Prayer Sunset Prayer at 7:30 pm. Father John will be doing a special prayer at the opening at 6:00 am and Holy Family parishioners are invited to come and pray. If you would like to read from the Bible, Holy Family is scheduled to read from 2:30-3:00 pm. Please call Erin Cobb at the Holy Family Offices for more information.
