Pastoral Care

Praying, Caring, Support

Pastoral Care is based on a model of emotional, social and spiritual support and is one of our most important ministries.  A committee meets regularly to oversee that all parishioners, especially those who are shut-ins, feel connected.

Among the valued ministries at Grace Church is the Lay Eucharistic Ministry. Several Lay Eucharistic Ministers ensure that shut-ins receive communion regularly. 

Other ministries include the card ministry, the prayer shawl ministry, Prayer Circle and the prayer chain ministry.


If any member of the parish has a pastoral need, (transportation, Eucharist request at home, visitation, cards, food or prayers, etc.), please contact Ginny Bliss 508-695-7301 or

Who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
