We take seriously our Baptismal Covenant to “seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself” (BCP, 305). Caring for each other as a family is a principle component in Discipleship. At All Saints, there are many ways in which we reach out in love and compassion towards each other during times of joy and sorrow. Pastoral Care enables us to reach out in love toward each other whereas Outreach enables us to reach out in love toward the world. In this way, we come to a deeper understanding of Christ’s love towards us and our call to bring that love to those who “are our neighbors.”
Pastoral Care Initiatives at All Saints
Anointing of the Sick and Reconciliation
Pastoral Care is offered in many sacramental ways at All Saints. The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, Sacrament of Reconciliation, and most especially in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, Christ ministers His healing presence to those who are hurting and in need of His loving grace. Please contact the parish offices if you are in need of the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick or the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
You do not need to be a chef to bless someone with a home cooked meal. We have a great pastoral care program that delivers home cooked meals to those who are sick and recovering, new to parenthood, dealing with the death of a loved one, or struggling with other issues. Volunteers cook up a new selection of meals each month and a member of All Saints delivers “home cooked love” to those who are in need.
All Saints has a vibrant and engaged Intercessor Team who prays for the needs of the congregation. This team daily intercedes for our parish prayer list. If you would like to be added to the Prayer List, please click here for the prayer list.
Visit to those who are sick
All Saints has a dedicated team of Eucharistic Visitors who bring Holy Communion to our sick and shut-in. Each Sunday, immediately following Holy Communion, our Eucharistic Visitors are brought forward and dismissed to bring Jesus, present in the Holy Eucharist, to those in need.
A transportation plan is created for those in need of assistance in traveling to and from All Saints. This is a great way to help those who are elderly and not able to drive still connect with our parish family. Requests are submitted to the Parish Offices.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
A dedication team of Needlecrafters meet weekly to make prayer shawls to those who would benefit from the comfort of a prayer shawl. Requests are submitted to the Parish Office.
