Pastoral Care Ministry is an integral part of the Office of Formation and Discipleship.  We collaborate with ministry leadership and parishes to promote and sustain effective outreach for a variety of specialized needs. Recognizing the Church’s desire to respond holistically to the entire person, from within the perspective of faith, we provide support, training, and resources for parish ministry leadership so that they may effectively attend to those entrusted to their care.
