Healtb Ministry May is National Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month. Osteoporosis is a major public health threat for an estimated 44 million Americans. Ten million Americans currently live with the disease and nearly 34 million are estimated to have low bone density. Osteoporosis causes an estimated two million fractures each year and can result in immobility. pain, and other health problems. These conditions and circumstances can largely be prevented through proper prevention. diagnosis and treatment. All Americans need to understand their risk factors and learn how to prevent the disease and then take action. This means striving to get enough calcium vitamin D and bone healthy exercise every day and talking to your doctor about when to get a bone density test. This is often considered a pediatric disease with geriatric conseqaences. About 85·90 percent of adult bone mass is acquired by age 18 in girls and 20 in boys. It is never too early or too late to take steps to improve bone health which is why parents and grandparents are encouraged to have a conversation with their children.

In St. Jon' S Gospel Jesus gives His disciples the gifts of the Spirit, peace, and the power to forgive sins. In this First Letter to the Corinthians, St. Paul encourages the faithful to live in unity and to appreciate each member's gifts, service and works granted to them by the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as one body in Christ. As Christian stewards what do we bring weekly to the Eucharistic table through our God given gifts of time, talent, and treasure to build up our parish communion to build up the body of Christ?
