When to Request

If you are confronted with a life-crisis, receiving a pastoral care visit or telephone call can be deeply comforting . Having a pastor present can help navigate the initial shock and provide a sense that Christ is also present with you. Some examples of life-crisis are: death of a loved one, loss of job, debilitating diagnosis, broken relationship.

Important:
Pastoral care is not intended to replace medical treatment or mental therapy.
