Pastoral Care Booklet: Words of Comfort
Nina and the Pastoral Care Committee have compiled a collection of prayers and psalms into a booklet titled, “Words of Comfort, for Times of Worry, Distress and Grief.”  The idea for the compilation arose as a means to support the community during the pandemic.  As the name implies, it is intended to be a resource for comfort beyond just our current situation.  

For ease of printing portions of the booklet, we have created a Table of Contents with page numbers and we have made the Psalms/Canticles a separate pdf.

E-mail Address
A new e-mail address has been created for the Pastoral Care Committee, which will provide a centralized e-mail for parishioner questions, thoughts, and concerns;
