Pastoral Care Ministries - Support Team
Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus...for it is God who is at work in you. Philippians 2: 5-13
Pastoral care derives its name and nature from the meaning of shepherd and suggests the work of the shepherd with the flock. That is why Cannon Law speaks of Pastoral Care as a necessary service for parish life. The Pastoral Care Ministries at Mother of Mercy bring the church community to those who, in the short term, have become sick, have had a mishap, or have suffered a loss. They also assist long term situations where parishioners are no longer able to attend, worship, and pray with our Church community on a regular basis. Our Pastoral Care Ministers serve in supportive and practical ways such as visits, providing meals, providing luncheons, as well as supplying parish literature and news of events and activities.
