The Pastoral Care Ministry gives parishioners the opportunity to show they care by extending a helping hand to others in need of support, kind words, and a sympathetic ear. Our pastoral care programs are broad and welcoming, with many participating in various ministry opportunities. Those who are called may serve in a number of important ways.
Eucharistic Visitors (EV) serves as a bridge between Sunday services and those who cannot attend by bringing communion to parishioners who are homebound or in the hospital. These visits include an abbreviated service using the day’s readings and prayers, as well as time for a visit.
Good Sams provides services on a short-term basis to parishioners who need help during times of illness or other emergencies. They provide meals, rides and other types of help. In 2018, Good Sams came to the aid of more than 150 parishioners.
