Pastoral Care


For more information about any of the following pastoral care ministries, please contact Ashley Ponce, unless otherwise noted.

ADAPTIVE NEEDS MINISTRY 

The Adaptive Needs Ministry reaches out to those parishioners of all ages with special needs, and to their family members. We aim to create a more welcoming environment for God’s special children in His house. We offer support and encouragement for families with special needs members. This support can include, but is not limited to, PSR and Sacramental assistance, prayers and meals, youth and young adult involvement and special programming. Contact Angela Young for more information.

The committee plans the Mass of Remembrance, and the meal which follows, for parishioners who have been bereaved in the past year.

Eucharistic Ministers take the Eucharist to parishioners who are homebound or those temporarily recovering from illness or surgery.

Each week Eucharistic Ministers visit McGregor to conduct a Communion service and take Communion to Catholic residents unable to attend the service.

GONZAGA DRIVERS

PINK POSSE/HEALING ROSARY 

Pink Posse is a support group for women in our parish who are going through a breast cancer journey. We gather socially on a semi-regular basis in support of women who want to discuss shared experiences in terms of treatment and moving forward. We also prepare meals for women/families who are going through surgery and treatment, as needed. In addition to our special ministry to those touched by cancer, we host a monthly Gesu Healing Rosary for all members of our parish who are in need of healing in mind, body or soul. All are welcome. Contact Deb Straniero for more information.
