was sick and you took care of me…
…just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.
– Matthew 25:36, 40

Pastoral Care at Christ Church Greenwich provides spiritual support to people and their families who are facing illness, loss, or other stressful situations.

The Book of Common Prayer states that “The ministers of the Church are lay persons [as well as], bishops, priests and deacons.” Prayer, listening, and sacraments ensure that no member of our parish family needs to face crises alone.

Do Good and Feel God!

Sign up as a volunteer! Our pastoral care volunteers provide worship or visit with some 30-50 people per week. Our volunteers say their time with those in need are the most rewarding and spiritual experiences in their lives. Here are ways to get involved for a few hours or in a more extensive ministry:

Pastoral Care Team

As a member of the Pastoral Care Team, you provide an important spiritual link to church, visiting the homebound, in rehab, long-term care facilities or local hospitals. You choose where and when you want to visit.

Homecoming Luncheons

Homecoming Luncheons are held twice a year for nursing home residents and longtime parishioners who enjoy a special celebration of Holy Eucharist, lunch and entertainment. Volunteers are needed to make casseroles, serve lunch, and visit with our guests.

Christmas Tea

Serve a festive High Tea to celebrate the season.

Caring Hands

Caring Hands volunteers send cards to parishioners dealing with illness, loss, and transition, as well as births and celebrations.
