The Pastoral Care Ministry Group was created to meet the needs of Saint Andrew’s members. Similar to the work of a shepherd, we care for our members through our prayer chain; sending cards for happy occasions as well as events that are life changing. We offer food for recuperating members or as a welcome gift to new members; transportation is available when needed for medical visits; and we visit members via phone or in person.
New ways of drawing our parish together, by care for each other, are evolving. We are considering, for example, a healing service held mid-week, perhaps similar to the one last summer at the Bartlett Retreat Center, maybe some kind of monthly luncheon for retired parishioners with a program presented by a member of our parish.
If you are interested in these possibilities or have other suggestions, we would really like to have you join us in this important ministry.
