PASTORAL CARE MINISTRIES
Pastoral Care Ministries
St Juan Diego parishioners are involved in many aspects of the life of the parish. There is an opportunity to use whatever talent and interest you have to help bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to our community. The following is a list of our ministries that serve within our Liturgies. If you are interested in getting involved in a ministry or would like more information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and put the ministry name in the subject line.
This ministry provides a number of support resources for Caregivers and additional resources of interest to the Parish community at large including:
The Caring Circle: A quarterly meeting for Caregivers to share their stories, challenges, inspirations, hopes and support for each other in a confidential and faith infused environment.
Respite Care: for those providing primary care for a disabled loved one,
a refuge from the challenges and consuming responsibilities that their loving attention demands. See pamphlet in the Narthex.
Library of informative pamphlets and books
Semi-annual Parish presentations on topics of general interest to the community. Past presentations have been on “Ethics”, “Nutrition”, “Caregiving”, “End-of-Life Planning”, and others.
