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.
Please contact us if we might be of help or comfort at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 or home communion by one of the trained caregivers, please contact Ann Fowler.
Parishioners licensed and trained as Eucharistic Visitors deliver communion to those who are not able to come to church for worship.
Ministry of Healing Prayer
Members are available in the side chapel during the Eucharist on Sundays to offer prayers for healing.
The Grief Pastoral Care Group meets 1st Thursdays at noon via Zoom for a healing and faith based conversation around grief and loss. Led by parishioners Megan Fraijo-Paul and Nancy Thompson, both trained psychotherapists. Please contact either Megan or Nancy prior to joining the group.
