At St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Pastoral Care seeks to ensure that one-to-one Christian care is provided to those who are facing a crisis or life challenge, such as the hospitalized, the terminally ill and their families, those who are home-bound or in a care facility, the aging and elderly. This Christian care is the ministry of a dedicated group of lay caregivers and the clergy and is grounded in Jesus’ commandment to “love one another as I have loved you.” Through this ministry we believe that St. Luke’s becomes the loving and nurturing community of faith that God calls us to be. We at St. Luke’s take our call to care for those in need very seriously. Please contact us if we can provide pastoral support in times of need and times of celebration. Please contact the office at email@example.com or by calling 612-824-2697.
Part of our Sunday Eucharist at St. Luke’s includes a ‘sending’ of lay visitors trained to share the Sacrament with members of the faith community who were unable to be present at the celebration because of illness or infirmity. If you know of someone who wishes to have a visit, or if you are interested in participating in this ministry, please contact the Deacon, firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. Luke’s has a vibrant healing prayer lay ministry involved in many activities inside and outside the church. We believe that God is still performing healing today and that we are called to help one another receive God’s transformative healing love. We have a vigorously trained healing prayer team and we are always welcoming new members from within St. Luke’s or from other churches and denominations. No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, you are welcome here. To learn more about the activities of the healing prayer ministry, click on a tab below or contact email@example.com.
Haiti is the most impoverished country in our hemisphere. St. Luke’s has been active in Haiti, most recently sponsoring a lunch program at St. Paul’s Episcopal School in Montrouis, northwest of Port au Prince. The Haiti committee also educates our parish about the history, social, religious, and economic issues of the Haitian people. Watch the video below to learn more.
