PASTORAL CARE

 

Parish Visitors

The mission is to care for our parishioners.  They visit hospitalized members and those in care centers and try to follow up on them.  Phone calls are made to those who rarely attend church but wish to stay in touch.  Licensed Pastoral Care Associates, Sharon Mather and Cecily Lansford, assist in this ministry.

TelecareJan Mann

The Telecare Ministry is a layperson Phone Ministry that provides support to members of our church family, telling someone we care, and asking members for any prayer requests.  Calls are made on behalf of the pastoral staff, which enables the Rector to become aware of any changes in a parishioner’s well-being.  The call is ended with a reminder that God loves you and we at Advent Episcopal Church love you too.

Bereavement – 

A trained bereavement person takes the family of the deceased through funeral arrangements regarding burial, special scripture, music and flowers.  Their wishes for a reception are passed on to the Reception Committee who prepare Paine Hall for a reception.

Walking the Mourner’s PathNan Wheeler

This Bereavement Ministry is designed to give persons the space and the tools to heal from grief over the loss of a loved one.  The program consists of two-eight-week sessions and each session is limited to ten participants.

Parish Nursing and HealthPat Carroll

Physical health of parishioners and health support preparedness are the primary focus.  We take care of parishioners during services and activities, and if appropriate, call in necessary help and try to assure that necessary equipment and supplies are available.

Funeral ReceptionsSigrid Cox

We provide a reception after funerals/memorial services, if the family of the deceased wishes one.  The committee bakes cookies and serves coffee and iced tea.   A more elaborate reception with sandwiches is financed by the family.  Anyone is invited to participate by either baking or helping set up the day before or the day of the reception.
