Pastoral Care is the work of our whole Church community and is a ministry to those who may be ill, in the hospital, shut in, grieving a death, experiencing parenthood for the first time, or in crisis.
Professionally trained lay ministers who provide confidential, safe, and comforting care to parishioners in times of crises or transition. They also visit those who are ill and take communion to those who are unable to attend church. Contact Cheryl Williams for more information, to request a visit, or to sign up.
1st and 3rd Thursdays, 9:30 a.m. (Sep.-May)
The Prayer Shawl Team meets twice a month to knit blankets and prayer shawls for those who are ill or grieving and for newborns and the newly baptized. In December, we donate shawls to Charles County Nursing and Rehab Center. We also make baby and youth blankets that are donated to service organizations such as The Center for Children, Children’s Aid of Charles County, and Project Linus. Contact Janet Sargent to sign up.
The Meal Train is a team of caring members who help provide meals for new parents or those recovering from illness. Contact Cheryl Williams to sign up.
