Pastoral Care

Our clergy are available for pastoral conversation, guidance, hospital visits, and in emergency situations. If you or someone you know needs a visit, please reach out to us. To make an appointment, please contact Fr. Sammy or Rev. Serena.

Lay Eucharistic Visitors

Our Lay Eucharistic Visitors are volunteers “empowered by the Holy Spirit, licensed for term by the Bishop upon appointment by the Rector, to deliver the Consecrated Elements to those unable to attend [in-church] Celebrations.” As someone once wrote, “[We] carry the Parish with [us] as a sign of the whole community’s care, support and concern for the sick, recuperating and infirm.” It is a ministry especially of presence, healing and hope. If you would like to schedule a visit from a LEV or if you know someone who might want a visit, please contact Assistant to the Rector for Pastoral Care Dorman Burch

Prayer Desk

We offer a confidential intercessory prayer desk with trained lay leaders during our Sunday Eucharists.  During COVID, we have moved our prayer desk online to Zoom at 10:30am on Sunday mornings.  The link is found on our home page.

Meals for Parishioners

Manna provides meals for individuals and families in the midst of illness or recovery and utilizes the app “Take Them A Meal” for scheduling and distribution. Please contact Mindy Mumme if you or someone you know at the parish needs a meal.

Newborn Families is a ministry that provides meals to families after the birth of a new child, an adoption, and helps integrate them into the parish family more generally. Please contact Nursery Director Gaylene Latham for more information.

Prayer Group

St. Bartholomew's has a dedicated group of parish members ready at home for confidential intercessory prayer on behalf of the needs of parishioners, their families, the church, neighbors and the community. Please contact Assistant to the Rector for Pastoral Care Dorman Burtch for your prayers to be forwarded to the prayer group.
