PASTORAL CARE

The Pastoral Care Committee works with and supports the pastoral ministry of the clergy in reaching out to parishioners at Church of the Epiphany. We support those facing illness, loss, or life transitions. We share in moments of celebration and joy. We reach out to those who need extra support. We depend on the congregation to keep us in touch with the pastoral needs of our community.

PASTORAL CARE GROUPS

Community of Hope

The Community of Hope is a group of lay volunteer pastoral caregivers united in prayer, shaped by Benedictine spirituality, and equipped for serving in pastoral care ministries. COH lay chaplains may serve in the parish and in the wider community in nursing homes, hospitals, prisons, or homeless ministries. The program includes worship and witness, learning and teaching, and fellowship and service. If you or a loved one would like to receive a pastoral visit by one of the trained caregivers, please contact Ann Fowler.

Eucharistic Visitors

Parishioners licensed and trained as Eucharistic Visitors deliver communion to those who are not able to come to church for worship.
