The thing the Church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful; it needs nearness, proximity.” – Pope Francis

Pastoral Care Ministry is an integral part of the Office of Evangelization and Discipleship.  We collaborate with ministry leadership and parishes to promote and sustain effective outreach for a variety of specialized needs. Recognizing the Church’s desire to respond to those wounded and hurting in our communities, OED provides support, training, and resources for parish ministry leadership so that they may effectively attend to those entrusted to their care. “Healing the wounds” and “warming the hearts” of the faithful often breaks down barriers to evangelization and brings about a closer, more vibrant life with Christ. This ministry work helps individuals and families realize their full potential and live more fully in Christ and in the life of the parish.

We are here to serve you and help you advance missionary discipleship and build strong domestic churches in your community!

Please contact us so we can assist you in this journey.
