Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is provided by the Cathedral Clergy and the Parish Nurse. Some volunteer lay persons also assist with the Pastoral Care ministries.

Cathedral Parish Nursing/Health Ministry Program
The Parish Nurse works alongside the clergy in the ministry of caring for the whole person: body, mind and spirit.

Active members of the Cathedral Community provide a continuing association with those members who are unable to participate in the services and activities of the Cathedral.
