Other Services

The Office of Pastoral Ministry is concerned about keeping the family unit together. We are also concerned about those family members experiencing difficulties or challenges such as: adoption, blended families, single parent families, dealing with in-laws, all types of abuse, and issues with growth. Though we are not counselors; we regularly provide referrals to counseling services at Catholic Charities, and resources that can help you in conjunction with counseling.  Groups for bereavement or family issues are available in parishes throughout the diocese and we will be happy to assist you in making connections that meet your needs.
