UUCSC Pastoral Care

The UUCSC Pastoral Care committee is led by the minister and provides pastoral care to members and friends of the congregation.  Committee members are trained to offer a “ministry of presence,”  which emphasizes being with, but not advising, congregants who are experiencing major life transitions. If you are in need of pastoral services please contact any member of the Pastoral Care Committee.  Rev. Betty Kornitzer, UUCSC Minister Emerita, is working with the committee and if they feel professional ministerial support is needed, she will be called in.  Please do not contact the Minister directly.

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. Two excellent resources are 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.
