Pastoral Care Ministries

Pastoral Ministry shares responsibility for the daily care of the faithful under the leadership of our pastor.  We recognize a direct connection between spirituality and the rest of life.  We are concerned with the care of our parishioners in spirit, mind and body.  We affirm the act of mercy dictated by Christ to care for the sick, comfort the dying and to be a beacon of encouragement, love and support to the parishioners of Divine Mercy Church.

We offer prayer, guidance and support to those struggling with physical and emotional needs as well as spiritual ones.  We minister to those who are in crisis, homebound, hospitalized, dying, in assisted living/nursing home care, grieving or needing support for difficult times in their life.  Please see a description of each ministry listed below.

 

If you or a loved one needs the support of Pastoral Care, please contact Bernadette Tatge at the parish office (507) 334-2266, ext. 23, or email Bernadette

 

Assisted Living/Nursing Homes

We regularly visit our area Assisted Living and Nursing Homes and offer Communion Services and Mass to our Parishioners.  It is important to us that they continue to feel connected and part of our Divine Mercy community.  We also provide Anointing, Confession and Ash Wednesday services during the year.  All family and parishioners are welcome to attend these services.  The dates and times are posted in the bulletin under Pastoral Care.

Please contact Bernadette Tatge at (507) 334-2266, ext. 23, or email Bernadette for further information or to partner with us in this ministry.

 

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The purpose of the shawls is to give comfort to those who are sick, to those who are struggling with grief, or to those who just need an affirmation of God's love.  We like to tell the recipients to wrap up in their shawls and rest in the arms of Jesus, to just let Jesus take care of them and give them strength and peace.  "Be still and know that I am God."  We have witnessed many miracles because of the shawls.  They are a sign of God's unending love.  Sometimes they are also given as a token of appreciation.
