Prayer & Care

Taking care of our community

Pastoral Care

At St. Bart's, our clergy and church members share the responsibility of taking care of each other through life's good times and the challenging times. This is a central part of being together as the Body of Christ, and you will hear St. Bart's referred to as" this church is my family."

We write notes and make phone calls, take flowers and communion to our housebound members, cook meals for families with new babies or those who have had recent surgeries or are grieving the loss of a loved one. Our Memorial Hospitality team prepares receptions to follow memorial services.

Our Pastoral Care Ministries are listed following the prayer request form below. These groups provide support, prayers, prayer quilts, meals, a friend to listen, communion brought to your home and more. Contact us if you would like to connect with our Pastoral Care Team or if you'd like to join one of these ministries.

For pastoral emergencies, please call us at 858-487-2324

Prayer request received.

Thank you for submitting this request and please be assured of our prayers. May God's peace be with you this day.

Our Pastoral Care Team includes clergy, staff chaplain, and parishioners who meet to identify parishioners who request or need prayer and support. A team member and appropriate pastoral care ministry are assigned to provide follow-up, and the interaction and status are recorded.

Eucharistic visitors are trained and commissioned parishioners who take and share communion with those who are unable to be physically present in worship.

Following Sunday worship, Flower guild members re-arrange altar flowers into multiple individual vases that are delivered to parishioners who receive pastoral care visits during the week.

Members sign-up to prepare and deliver hot meals for parishioners who are ill, recovering from surgery, have welcomed a new baby, or need short-term meal support.

Prayer quilts are an outward and visible sign of our prayers for parishioners and our neighbors near and far. Members make the quilts that are blessed and then tied by parishioners as they say a prayer for the person who will receive the quilt.

Members pray for parishioners and those for whom prayer is requested.

Hospitality team members host receptions following memorial services, assisting family members with room set-up, arranging pictures, ordering food and beverages, flowers, and clean-up.
