Pastoral Care

We believe in a definition of Pastoral Care which is not just about supporting people in challenging times but also celebrating the good and joyful times.

Especially in times of challenge, grief and uncertainty, Pastoral Care is primarily about listening and then supporting, encouraging and guiding the person or group of people to take steps towards healing.

In terms of Pastoral Care, we:

  • are available for discussions about things of deep meaning
  • believe in being driven by the need of the person sitting before us – not our own agenda
  • focus on building a supportive relationship with those who turn to us for Pastoral Care
  • model mercy and compassion
  • seek to help build each person’s dignity
  • seek to be part of a person’s return to wholeness and wellbeing
  • are a presence of the Church for people who want to discuss their questions about, or criticisms of the Church
  • are openly Catholic in our faith, however, we never push our faith on those who are not willing to engage in a faith discussion
