Companionship, sharing, support, and practical help are important values for St. David’s as we carry out our pastoral ministry with one another. The Ministry of Pastoral Care happens through the active involvement of the Pastoral Care Committee and its Petal Groups.

The Pastoral Care Committee

The Pastoral Care Committee is a group of members that envisions together, the issues and needs of our faith community. The Committee nurtures and encourages the various petal groups as they provide the following ministries:

Healing Touch Ministry

Healing Touch is an energy therapy in which trained practitioners consciously use their hands (hands on or off the body) in a heart-centered and intentional way to support and facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Sessions are offered once a month on the first Wednesday of the month. Donations are welcomed.

Card Ministry

Cards are sent to those in grief and dealing with an illness.

Prayer Chain

St. David's prayer chain committee is a group of members who take the time to pray for a list of people who are going through a rough time. If you are interested in adding somebody to the prayer chain list, please feel free to reach out to the Office or to any of the current prayer chain members.   

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Knitters and crochet crafters prayerfully create a shawl, praying and thinking about the needs that any one who receives the shawl might have. Along with a card, shawls are presented in confidence to those in crisis of illness, loss, or transition of any kind.
