Caring for each other in times of personal challenge or crisis is at the heart of our congregational culture and mission. In partnership with the minister, UUS:E’s Pastoral Care Committee helps us carry out this very important internal ministry. The Pastoral Care Committee ministers to UUS:E members and friends by keeping in touch through visits or phone calls, attempting to provide transportation to congregational events and medical appointments, sending notes or greeting cards, offering meals in times of illness, and providing hospitality at memorial services.
The Pastoral Care Committee is also able to recommend supportive resources within the congregation, as well as professional care and service providers in the larger community.
When you need a hand, please contact us. We are here to help, and are very willing to hear about your situation. Contact Pastoral Care Committee chair, 0 or Rev. Josh Pawelek at (860) 652-8961. If you’re having trouble reaching either of them, or if you’d like a list of Pastoral Care Committee members, please call the UUS:E office at (860) 646-5151.
If you can lend a hand, please let us know. The Pastoral Care Committee is always looking for people to help out. There is always the need for volunteers. Opportunities to help include brief, one time jobs as well as more involved roles. Together we form a network of members who reach out to one another in times of need.
