Care and Support Ministry



Pax Christi Care and Support Ministry is the pastoral care ministry of the parish. Staff and trained lay ministers extend God’s love and mercy to all through a holistic model of care for the mind, body, and spirit.

Our mission: Through relationships, acts, and words, we respond with a compassionate presence for all those seeking support, resources, and belonging. The Care and Support mission is to understand the needs and opportunities for pastoral care, education, and support. The Care and Support Council is the leadership body, learning, discerning, planning, and evaluating specific ministries.
