Pastoral Ministry Commission


Pastoral Care Team
Pastoral Care Team is a lay-led ministry that keeps in touch with our parishioners who are sick and in need of special prayer. We have a card ministry and maintain the weekly prayer list. Eucharistic Visitors, licensed by the Bishop, are trained to administer the sacrament of Holy Communion in homes, hospitals and care centers. Some qualifications include sensitivity, communication skills, deep spirituality and confidentiality. Also, Safeguarding Our Children training is required for all who participate in this in-reach ministry.

Prayer Shawl Ministry
Prayer Shawl Ministry is an important addition to pastoral care ministries. The shawls provide warmth and comfort for body and soul to those in need, sickness or adversity. This rewarding and fun service for the knitters in our church also affords a time of prayer as they knit.

Social Services
Social Services is a service where we provide advice on accessing social services in Collier and Lee Counties.

Cancer Survivors
Cancer Survivors offers a discussion support group as well as other related help.
