A Lay Pastoral Care Ministry team, with far-reaching possibilities, is being formed as part of our Strategic Plan: Good News 2020.
The ministry team will begin by informing the congregation of the pastoral care that is now taking place through St. James, and identifying the means for requesting pastoral care.
The next step will be to establish communication links among all ministries at St. James that may help to identify pastoral care needs.
The third phase will involve matching volunteers with activities. These activities would include administration of the program, delivery of food to homebound parishioners in need, driving parishioners without transportation to church, making caring visits to those in crisis, and training volunteers to be more effective in the caring visits.
If you are interested in volunteering for any aspect of this ministry or would like more information, please email Allen Paterson, or complete the form, below.
