Sharing the caring love of Christ
Email the ministry leaders at: firstname.lastname@example.org
All Saints’ is a caring community, and Pastoral Care is one way we express it. In a large church, a Pastoral Care Team helps reassure people that intimacy will still be there. We are all part of this ministry because our baptismal vows involve our promise to care for each other and others around us.
Pastoral Care Teams provide lay hospital visitation, lay nursing home visitation, homebound visitations, phone calls, and sometimes something as simple as a card. This ministry coordinates the Lay Eucharist Minster's visits, the Prayer Shawl ministry, and ensures that meals are provided to those in crisis. They provide caring support during a time of need.
Anyone can submit a prayer request using one of the prayer cards or by calling the church office. If you know of someone in need of a visit, please call the office.
Helping in little ways
Even if you aren't part of this ministry, you can help by:
- letting us know if you or a loved one is in the hospital. Privacy laws prohibit the hospitals from giving out information about admittance, so your information is critical.
- Is there someone you know, or someone who sits near you in church, that has been absent for several weeks? We encourage you to call that person, to make sure he or she is okay, or to call one of the clergy so we can make that important check-up call.
