Pastoral Care Team Meeting
May 10, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
A Request from the Pastoral Care Team
by Pat Trumbull (for the Pastoral Care Team)
Did you know there was a group within the Parish called the Pastoral Care Team? It’s under the umbrella of the Parish Life Commission, and its focus is assisting the priest with ongoing pastoral care of Saint Paul’s parishioners.
There are currently eight of us who meet regularly to be updated on pastoral care needs within the parish. The team is currently composed of Shirley Holt, JoAnne Tierney, Laurie Larsen, Rose Nightingale, Mary Poehler, Jean Brooks, Gloria Busby, and Pat Trumbull. Lydia meets with us when she can. We maintain an active prayer list, write notes, make visits and calls, and can take communion to homebound or hospitalized parishioners. We have recently moved our meeting to Sunday after church on the second Sunday of the month — the next meeting will be July 10. We invite you to join us to see what we are about.
At our June meeting, Lydia suggested we might want to put together a little booklet of our favorite prayers or inspirational pieces that might be given to those we are praying for, or those who might need additional emotional support. We invite you to share your favorite prayers or inspirational quotes with us so we can put this together.
There now is a mailbox labeled Pastoral Care with my name on it (Pat Trumbull). If you have something special to you that you would be willing to share, please put it in that box.
We would love to have YOU join our team!
