Pastoral Care & Support through Good Times and Bad

Three times Jesus asked Peter, “Peter do you love me?” Each time Peter answered, “Yes, Lord, I love you.” Jesus answered, “Then feed my sheep; tend my lambs.” Feeding Jesus’ sheep, tending Jesus’ lambs, caring for and supporting those who are lost, suffering, or new to the fold — this is the mission of Pastoral Ministry at St. Margaret’s.

Serving in ministries of prayer, care, and support. the people of St. Margaret’s are called, gifted, and trained to be the healing hands of Christ.
