Pastoral Care

Saint Mark’s has a rich tradition of pastoral care that is non-judgmental and deeply personal, delivered by a skilled and committed team. Our mission is to discern and respond actively to a wide variety of individual needs in a respectful and compassionate way.

We pray for those in need and those that have departed this life.

The Pastoral Care Team provides spiritual support, encouragement, and a listening presence at times of personal and family transitions and celebrations. We prayerfully assist others as they make meaning of life crises, difficulties, loss, and grief.


A group of knitters meet and knit shawls for people who are in need of extra prayers. All levels of skill are welcome. The group enjoys conversation and laughter while they knit.

The Downtown Coalition for Grief Support offers an educational and emotional support group to those who have lost a loved one.


The Ministry Team offers healing prayers, laying on of hands and anointing with oil by which God’s grace is given for the healing of spirit, mind and body at the Enmegahbowh Healing and Reconciliation Station during Sunday worship.

Eucharistic Visitors serve God and their brothers and sisters in Christ by sharing the consecrated elements (wine and wafers) from Celebration of the Holy Eucharist with members of the faith community who are unable to attend worship services.


Community of Hope Pastoral Care training will begin September 14, 2015 to strengthen our relationships, ensure excellence in our training, and broaden our pastoral ministries.
