Pastoral care is an ancient model of emotional and spiritual support that can be found in all cultures and traditions. In difficult and demanding times such as a critical illness or other traumas in life, we may experience high stress, reducing our ability to cope. At these times the help of others may be very valuable. Family members and friends are often a very important support, but sometimes the presence of a person who is more emotionally detached from the situation and possibly bringing a faith based model can be very helpful.
The rector of Good Shepherd and a group of caring volunteers want to help. We can lend a sympathetic ear, a gentle touch, and share the love of Jesus for all of us. We can bring Communion if desired or just a caring attitude. If you or someone you love needs our care, click here or call 781-944-1572.
