“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.”  (Matthew 25:35-36, Source:  USCCB.org)
 Please take time to consider visiting the sick by joining the Pastoral Care Ministry. 
 

Pastoral Care Ministry is  modeled on the Gospels and Jesus' example of love and concern for the sick and those separated from their family, friends and community.  Pastoral care ministers give personal witness to the presence of God in the church through the expression of their faith, hope and love in their outreach and visitation to the sick, the elderly , homebound and their caregivers.  This ministry maintains the vital relationship between those being served and their parish community.  The Diocesan Office of Pastoral Care supports the work of the parish and its volunteers by providing resources, training and consultation.


If you think you are being called to this ministry, please take time to speak to us as there is a great need for volunteers.  No dedicated amount of time is too little.


If you have family or know of any parishioners of Corpus Christi that are having surgery, are shut-ins, are in nearby nursing homes or are absent from church due to illness, please let us know!  Our volunteers can provide a card, a visit, prayer, communion and share scripture. 



Please call Corpus Christi Pastoral Care at 518-877-8506 ext. 302
