Pastoral Care Program
Our pastoral care committee includes Rev. DL, Barbara Beckwith, Sally Barney, Cindy Berry, Sky Kimball, and Joan Ray.
Rev DL provides pastoral care to members and friends of the congregation, and committee members are trained to offer “ministry of presence,” being with but not advising congregants in major life transitions.
Upon request, the congregation will provide three meals after a hospital stay or during the severe illness of a member or friend of the congregation.
The committee also helps to make local community resources such as housing services readily accessible to members and friends. We also have two excellent resources available for review on the reference shelf of the UUCSC library: a well-used guide to pastoral care resources, and a new book, Senior Resource Guide of Rhode Island.
