The Pastoral Care ministers are members of the parish who are commissioned to bring the Eucharist, to the sick. Membership in this ministry is open to all who have completed a 10-week Pastoral Care Training Program. There are also the requirements or the Responsible Ministry protocol that must be met (a police check, references, etc). Pastoral Care is a ministry of presence, empathy and compassion. Through their visits Pastoral Care ministers continue the experience of community with those unable to attend the Sunday liturgy. This includes the elderly, the disabled, the dying, or those experiencing depression, are in crisis, or are bereaved. We, at this time, are looking to expand our Pastoral Care Ministry. If you feel called to this ministry or would like more information contact the office or firstname.lastname@example.org.
