Pastoral Care Ministers

Pastoral care ministers are representatives of the parish who bring compassion and Communion to those who are sick or unable to be with our faith community. They serve individuals who live in their own home, a group home, a nursing home, or to those who are in the hospital. Persons in this ministry are reliable, good listeners, and able to drive. They are also able to connect with others on a prayerful level. Training is provided individually, as needed. The time commitment varies and can range from once a week, to once a month, to occasionally. The length of the session can be from 20-30 minutes to a few hours. While the time and day is somewhat flexible, most requests are for weekdays (not evenings) and Saturday or Sunday mornings.
