PASTORAL CARE & PRAYER
“ I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35
The clergy, lay staff, and volunteers work together at St. Benedict’s to provide Pastoral Care Ministries that encourage and support experiences of the fullness of God’s love through prayer and acts of loving kindness. The reasons for needing Pastoral Care can be many and varied, but whatever your reason and whether the need is acute or an ongoing burden, we hope you will contact us. We will work with you to find meaningful ways in which we can support you, whether it be prayer support, visitation or simply be a listening ear, whether you are in the hospital or at home, or prefer to come into the office.
We invite you to contact the church office at 678-279-4300 or The Rev. Jenna Strizak. In the case of a pastoral emergency, please call 678-322-7866.
If for some reason you can’t make it to church but would like to receive Holy Communion, a group of lay people known as Eucharistic Visitors are trained by our priests and licensed by the Bishop, to bring Holy Communion to you. The Eucharistic Visitor receives a box containing the sacraments of consecrated bread and wine and after the service can then bring Holy Communion to you.
Email The Rev. Jenna Strizak to Volunteer to be an EM or ask to be placed on the visitation schedule.
