Providing for the spiritual and religious needs of the St. Coletta community is the goal of Pastoral Ministry. While rooted in the Franciscan tradition of Christianity, we are ecumenical in spirit, as we strive to help each member of our community develop their own spiritual life. People in our community come from different cultures, countries, religious groups and faiths. Everyone is encouraged to deepen their faith, following their own spiritual traditions.
Persons with disabilities sometimes have special needs when it comes to worship. We try to help them feel fully involved and experience God for themselves. Some of them may not easily understand words, so we use music, gesture and mime in prayers and services.
Pastoral Ministry Provides:
- Community celebrations of faith
- Bereavement support
- End of life care in conjunction with local hospice providers
- Assistance in attending church or synagogue of choice
