Honoring Our Lay Pastoral Ministry Team
Sunday, February 26 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Pastoral care is a ministry of presence. People have stories of grief, trauma, loss, confusion, loneliness and depression. There is healing value in speaking these stories out loud when there is a compassionate person to listen with attention, and with the intention to bear witness. Our lay pastoral ministers will listen without judging, offering advice, or trying to fix anything. Having someone tuned in and able to be with you while you sort through your feelings allows you to tap into your own deep wisdom and capacity to heal. Rev. Dr. María Cristina Vlassidis Burgoa and the Lay Pastoral Ministry Team will be preaching.
