Pastoral Care

The ministry of Pastoral Care centers on taking care of members of the parish in times of crisis, illness or grief. St. Simon & St. Jude is a community committed to the well-being of its members through caring relationships and actions, intentionally meeting both the spiritual and life needs of the congregation.

Our clergy concentrate on providing spiritual guidance and comfort to members of the parish and their families, while the Pastoral Care Team provides more tangible support to our parishioners. Each week, flowers from the Sunday worship service are delivered to those who ill, home bound, in hospitals or nursing homes, and those who have suffered losses. Cards are sent to people in times of illness, loss, or other life events. Meals are provided to those in need as well.

If you or a member of your family need any kind of pastoral support from our priest or the committee, or if you are interested in serving on the Pastoral Care Team, please notify our priest or call the church office at (803) 732-0153.
