Pastoral Care Committee members have formally taken on the important ministry of presence and prayer for the community and those dear in heart. Pastoral care includes:

  • Home Meeting Hosts organize gatherings for the community in individual homes, maintaining and building the friendships and networks created in the parish. They offer their time to bring St. James’ worship and programs to those who are unable to make the trip themselves.
  • Drivers help transport people to and from church for worship services and programs.
  • St. James Prayer Group commit themselves to keeping the needs of parish members in their daily prayers. Members receive online prayer requests and notices of happenings, such illness, death, and other life events. Members also gather during the year for quiet days of prayer, reflection, and discussion of intercessory prayer.
