Pastoral Care Ministry

Pastoral Care at St. Luke’s is provided by an active Pastoral Care ministry group, as well as by the clergy.

Many people have been quietly providing pastoral care for many years, but after the annual meeting in 2009, a more intentional approach was begun. Referrals are made to a pastoral care coordinator and people who have expressed a desire to participate are contacted to take turns at sending a card, making a phone call or providing a meal. The current pastoral care coordinator is Barbara Black.

As well, Rev. Barbara Clarke visits people in need such as before surgery or when a visit is desired. Eucharistic visitors are also available to bring Holy Communion to people unable to be present in church.
