At St. Peter’s, clergy and laity share the responsibility for Pastoral Care. It sometimes comes from a group organized for a particular ministry; and sometimes it's simply a telephone call, a note, a visit or a meal.
Parishioners take flowers and communion to homebound parishioners and cook meals for those with new births in the family or who are grieving the loss of a loved one. We also prepare receptions for funerals, provide transportation to medical appointments and more. Supporting one another through life's ups and downs is a central part of being together as the body of Christ.
Providing Pastoral Care visits in the hospital, Hospice care center or at home occur on a regular basis, we also have durable medical equipment available to lend. Coordination and referrals to community agencies are available.
The groups below contribute to the Pastoral Care offered at St. Peter's:
This group of women gathers together a minimum of twice a year to prepare up to 100 individual meals and freeze them to send out when someone is sick, recovering from a hospital stay, or has had a new baby. We make healthy soups, hearty meals and also some "comfort" foods. We also will provide meals when a caregiver needs a break. The chefs are always glad to have new cooks join the kitchen.

The Flower Delivery Ministry volunteers take bouquets made from the Sunday Altar flowers to hospitals or homes to share a smile, say thank you or just let someone know we are thinking of them. Most volunteers only work 5-6 Mondays a year and welcome you to join if you can spare two hours to offer a smile and comfort.
