Pastoral Care ministers are parishioners commissioned to bring the Eucharist to the sick. Membership in this ministry is open to all who have completed a 10-week Pastoral Care Training Course and have a clear police record check. Pastoral Care is a ministry of presence, empathy, and compassion. Pastoral Care ministers bring the experience of faith community to those unable to attend the Sunday liturgy. This includes the elderly, the disabled, the dying, or the bereaved.
