Pastoral Care Class

Tues 9/14-11/9 | 7-8:30 pm online

Most churches, including St. Mark’s, have valued traditions of pastoral care whereby members of the faith community are sustained by others in times of difficulty, immediate need, or illness. Compassionate outreach from others can be a source of healing and encouragement. We often think of pastoral care as only the province of the clergy, but increasingly members of the laity volunteer to extend the reach of pastoral care beyond what the clergy can do alone.

This six-session course, led by Rev. Cindy Dopp, will explore how parishioners can be part of the pastoral care process and also delve more deeply into who we want to be as a community that values and nurtures pastoral care.

Dates: Tuesdays, 9/14, 9/28, 10/5, 10/12, 10/19, 11/2, and 11/9 (no class 10/26)

Time: 7–8:30 pm

Location: Zoom
