Pastoral Care Ministry is the Ministry of Presence. We are present to each other, present to God and present in ourselves. In this presence, we understand more deeply the ways to which we are able to care for one another as wounded and healing children of God. This takes hard and intentional work. This ministry space has the opportunity for pastoral care training, leadership and team development and the building of a pastoral community.
Jesus says to love one another, to care for those in need and to be present in our faithful walk with God as Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer. This is pastoral ministry at its foundation.
There are opportunities for training and mentoring as well as development. You are invited to email The Rev. Deacon Tracey Stagg for more information or any enquiries. Your parish leadership may also be able to provide some assistance.
