by clergy and members of the lay visitation team.
The pastoral care visitation team is composed of parishioners who have completed a 5-6 session formational pastoral care-giving course and who, through conversation with clergy, have discerned a call to this ministry. Most pastoral visitation team members visit at least one person on a weekly basis throughout the year.
The Rev. Peter T. Vanderveen, Rector
The Rev. Melissa Q. Wilcox, Assistant Rector
The clergy are available to counsel and pray with those in need at most any time in any setting. For example, a call to the parish office or an email to a clergyperson prior to or following surgery, in an emergency, or just to set up an appointment is always welcomed. Lay parishioners called to the ministry of healing are available in the chapel at the 9 am (or 10 am summer) service to offer prayer and laying on of hands during the administration of communion for individuals or family groups, for self or for others.
