Caring for our Family
Our Pastoral Care Action Team is involved in a wide variety of programs offering friendly, practical and emotional support to St. Paul’s congregation members and families in times of crisis or need. These volunteers provide these services in a confidential and caring manner, consistent with Christ’s love and compassion.
The St. Paul’s minister provides many of these same or similar services, in his professional capacity. The Pastoral Care volunteers supplement the minister’s work, guided by the input of the minister.
Volunteers take part regularly at weekly church services at Birkdale Place Retirement Community, Milton District Hospital and at other facilities in Milton.
Church members, who are trained in issues relating to pastoral care, are available to make friendly visits and emotional, spiritual and practical support to those in Milton District Hospital or chronic care facilities at the hospital, Allendale, Martindale Gardens, Birkdale Retirement Home and Season Retirement Home. If you know of anyone needing this service, please contact the church office.
Exploring the topic of Grief, led by Rev. Dr. Dale Skinner, is scheduled to run April 12 to May 10.
If you would like to become a part of the pastoral care ministry, please contact the church for more information.
