Pastoral Care

The ministry of Pastoral Care is a compassionate presence in imitation of Jesus’ care of people, especially those who are hurting and in need. Pastoral Care challenges us to support one another and collaborates with the wider community in providing direct support or aid to the community and especially to youth at risk in the form of programs, services, service projects, and counseling. It creates a network of care and support for young people and strengthens family life by assisting families to improve family skills such as communication, decision making, problem solving, and reconciliation by providing and connecting adolescents and families to support services, referral resources, and self-help groups to promote healing during times of loss, sudden change, unexpected crisis, and problems, personal or family transitions.
