Pastoral Care is provided for the parish by a team that includes all clergy members plus volunteer lay people. If you or a parishioner you know needs one of these ministries, please contact the person listed with that particular ministry, or contact the church office. If you are interested in getting involved in one of these ministries, contact the coordinator of that ministry.
In addition to Fr. Tim’s clergy pastoral care, lay people are available for many pastoral care needs. Chairing the Care Team is Cindy Fleming. Coordinators of the various ministries, with contact information, are listed below with their ministries.
Meals to help individuals or families during times of illness, hospitalization of a family member, the birth of a baby, or a death in the family are arranged by this ministry.
