The Pastoral Care Ministry is a parish effort to reach out to parishioners in need, for example, visits to nursing homes, or the home bound by the Extraordinary Ministers of Mercy. It also encompasses the many efforts of the Outreach Committee such as Dorothy Day and Town Food Bank support. All of these activities are addressed by the generous commitment of time and donations of goods from the parish family.

At times in the life of a parish circumstances coincide to challenge a particular family’s ability to meet the task of providing subsistent care. It is the Pastor’s privilege and duty to reach out on behalf of the parish family to assist those particular families who find themselves in significant need through the Family Assistance Program

The function of assisting families identified by the Family Assistance Program is just one more aspect of overall pastoral care.  The effort to provide resources that enable the Pastor to meet the needs of the Family Assistance Programis often just referred to as "Pastoral Care."

Influenza is a respiratory illness from which most people recover without difficulty. For people in the high risk categories, it can have severe complications and even death. A complication might be mild dehydration but if not treated, could escalate into a very serious concern. The flu can also cause bacterial pneumonia and worsen conditions like congestive heart failure, asthma, or diabetes. In the US an average of over 200,000 people are hospitalized each year because of complications of which 36,000 will die. Flu is serious business so protect against it.
