Pastoral Care

PC Rose.001.jpg
 
 

St. George’s is a community guided by Christ to love one another as Christ loves us; we care for each other in times of joy and sorrow. Pastoral Care is active encouragement and compassion offered by lay people and clergy to celebrate, sustain, heal, and reconcile one another. We reach out in our own individual, spontaneous ways and through organized groups like the Caring Ministry, Lay Eucharistic Visitors, Healing Prayer, Order of St. Luke’s, Daughters of the King, and Prayer Quilt & Shawl Ministries. If you would like to request prayer please click here or to find out more about opportunities to care please click here.

Caring. The Caring Ministry trains lay people to visit with and journey with those who are facing life’s griefs, joys, sorrows, and other transitions. Ministers listen deeply, compassionately and confidentially, without judgment or intrusion. For more info, contact Ellie Brokaw (link to her email).

Visiting. St. George’s Lay Eucharistic Visitors (LEVs) share the good news of Jesus Christ, Eucharist and worship with residents of various senior communities as well as to individuals on a weekly basis. For more information about receiving a visit or becoming a LEV, contact the Rev. Pat McCaughan at (link to email).

Healing Prayer. Healing prayer takes many forms at St. George’s, from our Healing Prayer Service and Laying on of Hands each week at 12noon on Wednesdays, to our Lay Eucharistic Visitors, Daughters of the King, Order of St. Luke the Physician, and Prayer Quilt and Prayer Shawl ministries to our church prayer list. To add a name to the list, email the parish administrator. (link to Pat August)

Rides Ministry. St. George’s believes lack of transportation should not prevent anyone from joining the community for worship. So much exchange happens in the course of prayer, Scripture, music and the Peace. For more info about this ministry, contact Bob Howe at: rchowe8@gmail.com
