Pastoral Care Ministry
The Pastoral Care Ministry provides comfort and support to parishioners in many ways. In addition to arranging and dispensing flowers to shut-ins, the sick or sorrowing following the weekend services, cards are sent to people in times of illness, anniversaries, or life events. Songfests provide entertainment to parishioners and friends at Shell Point a couple times a year. Volunteer shuttle drivers are scheduled to bring people to worship and potluck dinners. Meals and food supplies are provided to those who need them. Certified Eucharistic Visitors provide comfort to parishioners unable to attend services. The Prayer Chain and Prayer Shawl Ministries provide other venues for parishioners to involve themselves in pastoral care as well. During hurricane season evacuation lists are revised. Monthly meetings update parishioners’ needs and provide continuous direction to the Pastoral Care Ministry.
With the assistance of our Parish Nurse, the PCM offers many more caring opportunities. For example, CPR courses have been arranged, flu shots offered on site, and Health Forums offer education on a variety of topics. We have also encouraged parishioners to reach out and share holiday dinners with others. The Pastoral Care Ministry is comprised of a strong core group of people as well as several of our adjunct clergy.
