The ministry of pastoral care is a compassionate effort to follow the example of Jesus’ care of people in need. St. Francis clergy are always available to provide pastoral care to those in need. In 2010, St. Francis parish began a Lay Eucharistic Visitor (LEV) program. Eight parishioners were trained to administer Holy Communion and provide pastoral care to members of our parish who are unable to attend church. This important ministry enables all members to remain part of our community.
