St. Elizabeth Pastoral Care Team

St Elizabeth the New Martyr Parish Health Ministry

The St. Elizabeth Parish Health Committee helps parishioners with both physical and spiritual health concerns.

Here are some of the team’s activities:

Prayer and Unction

  1. Members of the intercessory prayer group pray individually for people whose names are placed in the box in the narthex.
  2. Prayer sheets are distributed each month to encourage prayer for fellow parishioners, with names of parishioners in rotation and those with special needs and celebrations.
  3. Unction is offered after vespers on the Second Saturday of the month.

Other Ministries

  • Blood pressure screening is held after Divine Liturgy every 5th Sunday.
  • Providing food for people who are ill/post-surgery, etc.
  • Rides to church
  • Card ministry
  • Prayer shawl ministry

End of Life Planning

We offer occasional programs highlighting medical, religious, and practical issues in planning for death.
