Who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. ~ 2 Corinthians 1:4
Pastoral Care is part of the mission of St. Paul. The ministry of our pastoral visitors is to bring the Eucharist to any parishioner who requests it because he or she is unable to get to church. Besides bringing the Eucharist, they bring the message that the homebound person is still considered part of the parish community and that the rest of the community is one with them.
Dedicated lay volunteers serve the community all through the week by providing Pastoral Care to the sick and homebound, singing at funerals, and counseling the bereaved.
St. Paul’s pastoral visitors minister to residents of assisted living facilities. At these assisted living facilities, volunteers conduct Communion Services. In addition, there are homebound parishioners who receive Communion and a visit from our pastoral care ministers.
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick can be offered. Please call the parish office to schedule.
