CARE MINISTRIES

Pastoral Care

The Pastoral Care Team at Emmanuel supports people in their pain, loss, and anxiety; and their triumphs, joys, and victories. We try to be aware of the needs and concerns of our immediate parish as well as their concerns outside our church family through active prayer lists, cards, visitations, phone calls, meal preparation, and remembrances at special times of the church year.

Community of Hope

Community of Hope International (COHI) is a “lay chaplaincy program of praying communities” which provides extended pastoral services to parishioners in need of referral by clergy. ( See COHI Booklet) Companions are formed by studying Benedict’s Rule as interpreted by Sister Joan Chittister, and our intention is “ to see Christ in the other.”
