“All Are Welcome In This Place”

Pastoral Care

Jesus expects us to care for all of his children, and especially “the least of these.” At St. Andrew’s, our Pastor and parishioners support those in need through a variety of ways. We pray for hearts to love and hands to serve. Our  Pastoral Care Ministry is grounded in Jesus’ command to love one another.
During these unsettling and uncertain times, all of us need someone to talk to. Someone to listen to our concerns, our fears, our hopes, and our dreams. If you need someone to talk to, please use one of these opportunities to talk with someone from our Intercessory Prayer Ministry Team.

Lay Eucharistic Visitors

Holy Rollers Transportation

Parish members offer to pick up those who don’t drive and bring them to church, the doctor or other essential destinations. Contact the church office if you need a ride or if you’re willing to provide this transportation.
Share the Care
When a family is celebrating a ‘life event’, ie., a birth, recovering from surgery or an illness, a death, or  hardship, this ministry provides meals to lend support.  If you would be willing to provide a meal when a life event such as those mentioned above occur, please contact our church office at 219-462-4946.

Members of this ministry team visit parishioners who are hospitalized to offer prayers and compassion. Contact the church office if you need someone to visit you or a loved one, or if you would like to be a member of this amazing ministry team.
