Pastoral Care Ministries
St. Francis has a dedicated prayer group. This group of prayer partners prays for the weekly petitions we have listed in the Sunday bulletin and sometimes beyond that list. Our prayer circle is strictly confidential. A prayer request is never discussed outside the circle. If you'd like to join this group, please contact one of our clergy. Everyone is welcome to participate. Both intercessions and thanksgivings are welcome. Also, if you have a request that you'd prefer not be listed in the Sunday bulletin but you'd like the prayer circle to include in their prayers, please contact the church office.
Stephen Ministers are parishioners with a special gift for listening and companionship, who offer confidential one-on-one ministry to individuals going through a hard time. Extensive training is provided.
This group reaches out to parishioners in time of need by providing meals, transportation, and other help as needed. A database of parishioner skills is maintained.
