About ICHM-SK

“A parish nurse in every congregation.” This is the vision that ICHM-SK is working to fulfill. Saskatchewan’s provincial chapter of InterChurch Health Ministries, ICHM-SK is a registered Canadian charity consisting of congregations and parishes, along with parish nurses, who work together, ecumenically, to promote an understanding of the relationship between faith and health. We offer informational forums, resource materials, support, and consultation. ICHM-SK also assists with the training and recruitment of parish nurses.

Mission Statement

Fostering healthy communities through Christ’s healing ministry


ICHM-SK is build around a congregational model of faith and health. The physical, mental, and spiritual health of members is a concern for the whole congregation. Although congregations are encouraged to engage a parish nurse who has specialized training, the parish nurse is not isolated in the work. ICHM Partner Congregations form a Health Cabinet and Health Committee, often even before a parish nurse is called.
