Pastoral Ministries

As each has received a gift, employ it for one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who utters oracles of God; whoever renders service, as one who renders it by the strength which God supplies; in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ.

1 Peter 4:10-11

Absalom Jones Prayer Ministry

Eucharistic Visitors

Eucharistic Visitors are lay people who “take the Consecrated Elements in a timely manner following a Celebration of Holy Eucharist, to members of the congregation who, by reason of illness or infirmity, were unable to be present at a public celebration of the Eucharist.
