Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care is the way in which we journey with each other...

Arlene Kelly

Pastoral care is a reflection of the loving concern for the spiritual and physical condition of Friends within a meeting. Thoughtful attention, careful listening, and prayer are at its heart. 

We provide pastoral care through prayer, presence, affirmation, listening, connection, and practical support.
