Pastoral Care Action Team
The mission of the Pastoral Care Action Team (PCAT) is to attend to the spiritual and emotional well being of our community. We provide caring spiritual and practical support as well as opportunities for deeper interpersonal connection and learning. We try to be responsive to ongoing and changing needs in our community. This goal is accomplished through the work of each of our subgroups and in collaboration with our Minister and other professional staff as well as the other action teams.
