If any of you are sick, they should call for the elders of the church, and the elders should pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. --James 3:14, Common English Bible
Along with a deep commitment to outreach, St. Paul's doesn't forget about "inreach," providing many ways to support the physical, emotional, and spiritual health of our parishioners. Our Health and Healing ministries are a vital way that we serve each other, and are comprised of the following:
The Eucharist is an important part of our worship experience. If you are unable to attend church for health or other reasons, our Eucharistic Visitors will bring the Eucharist to your home or hospital room. Please call the church office with your request to schedule a visit.
The beautiful altar flowers we enjoy each week are repurposed by this ministry group. They rearrange the flowers and take them to those in need of an uplifting of spirit.
These parishioners are available in the side chapel each Sunday morning before church, during the Eucharist, and after church. They provide anointing or prayers for anyone with a need. They will also visit the sick in the hospital or at home to pray and anoint those who are ill or injured.
The St. Brigid Chapter of the Daughters of the King
Established in 1885, the Daughters organization is comprised of ladies who have made a lifetime commitment to daily prayer and service to all in need. To submit a prayer request to the Daughters of the King, fill in one of the DOK pew cards or speak to any Daughter. The DOK prayers are kept confidential and are not shared with the parish.
Cooks Who Care
When a person or a family is in need, either for joyous or sad times, our gifted and generous parishioners provide compassion and meals delivered to homes until they are back on their feet. Please advise the church office or a team member on the occasion of a new baby, a death, illness, hospitalization or other need.
In the pew rack at St. Paul’s, you will find parish prayer list request cards. Please fill out this card if you or a loved one is in need of prayer, and place it in the offering plate, or send to the church office. This person will be placed on our parish prayer list. Fill out the Daughters of the King prayer cards located in the narthex, or contact the chapter president Kitty Kelley to put someone on the DOK prayer list; their list is confidential and will not be shared with the parish prayer list.
At St. Paul’s, if you have a need, whether it be spiritual, emotional or physical, our wonderful team of ministers is here to help.
