Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care Ministries Brochure Display Cover_edited.png

“The Mission of St. Augustine Church Pastoral Care Ministries is to foster wholeness of Body, Mind and Spirit by providing support physically, emotionally and spiritually to benefit our parish family.” 

Our Pastoral Care Ministries: the Health & Wellness Team, Lay Eucharistic Ministry, Caregiver Support Group, Faith Flowers, Healing Hearth Ministry and Prayer Shawl Ministry, each with its unique gift, share this common thread.
