Knitting Group and Prayer Shawl Ministry

Members knit prayer shawls for the ill or bereaved, blankets for newborns and scarves for teens and for those experiencing homelessness. Training is available. The knitted articles are blessed and given as parishioners request or as the team sees need.

To volunteer or to request a shawl, contact Marti Dever

Pastoral Care Team

After Sunday worship, volunteer drivers deliver bouquets created from the altar flowers to the homebound, ill or bereaved. The Pastoral Care Team also prepares and delivers food to parishioners during times of need. In December the Team organizes the Christmas cookie bake/delivery to parishioners who are unable to join us in person for worship and at Easter delivers lilies and other flowers from the altar to those who are unable to attend worship in person.

Eldercare Network

This ministry of relationship matches volunteers with homebound parish elders, for regular or periodic check-ins by phone. Volunteers must be approved by clergy and trained in the Safeguarding God’s People program.

Eucharistic Visitors

At the request of clergy, lay Eucharistic Visitors bring consecrated bread and wine from Sunday worship services to parishioners who are unable to attend church due to illness. The Eucharistic Visitors then share communion with the parishioners in an abbreviated service. Training is required and provided by the Diocese of Colorado. Eucharistic Visitors also meet several times a year for updates and discussion.
