OUR PROGRAM

THE BIG PICTURE: 4 TIERS OF PASTORAL CARE

Tier 1- Caring Hearts  When you need a meal, a ride to an appointment/other errands, or rides to church /church events, Caring Hearts would like to help! Please request by emailing caringhearts@stm-ca.net or by leaving a message on the Caring Hearts extension at the church office 916.488.3550  ext 12. Caring Hearts email and phone messages are checked once a day at 9am.  Please give at least 3 days notice for all requests.

Tier 2- Pastoral Partners  Offers intentional hospitality and support through regular check ins with members who may be feeling isolated due to illness or other life circumstances. 

Tier 3- Pastoral Ministers and Bereavement Ministry  Offers ongoing spiritually based pastoral care after clergy have attended to initial crisis. We use Community of Hope Curriculum for training. Our first group finished in June 2015. Future training dates to be planned for 2016. 

Tier 4- Clergy Pastoral Care  Offers pastoral care for those situations that  feel the need for clergy presence.  Please call the office to be directed to the person on pastoral call.  916.488.3550

GRIEFSHARE 

GriefShare is a support group for those struggling with the death of a loved one.  The GriefShare program is held every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month from 3pm to 5pm in the Conference room at St. Michael's.  People may enter the program at any time.  Deacon Cindy will assist with helping you integrate into the program and with the ongoing group.
