Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

As a Cathedral family, we care for each other’s minds, bodies, hearts and souls through teams of lay leaders and clergy who are trained to offer care.

Please explore the pages within this section of our site to learn more about each area of service and how you can receive support or get involved.

  • Card Writing Ministry- For those who love to send a little snail mail note of love, prayer, and care to those in need; and
  • Caregiver Support Group - If you are a caregiver for someone in your life, consider joining us for our Caregiver Support Group, which meets every other Monday at 4:45 pm in the Sundancer Library.
  • Clergy - St. Paul's clergy are available for personal meetings as well as visitations.
  • Flower Deliveries - Lay people who prepare the previous week's altar flowers for delivery to the ill, the home-bound, or someone who simply could use a day brightener;
  • Lay Eucharistic Visitors - Certified by the Diocese, these lay people deliver Communion from the reserve sacrament to the home-bound, those with long-term needs and to people in hospitals;
  • Pastoral Care Team - A group of trained lay people who provide support, prayer and presence to the home-bound, to those with long-term needs, and who make urgent visitations to people in hospitals;
  • Prayer Shawl Ministry- Open to all yarn heads. Make prayer shawls, lap blankets, and baby blankets filled with prayer that will be blessed and delivered to those in need;
  • Veteran/Military Friendly Congregation - St. Paul's is a designated Veteran/Military Friendly Congregation and seeks to serve the unique needs of our active military, veterans, and their families as they grow their faith and connect with our church family. We offer a variety of means of support and resources to these beloved community members. Learn more about Veterans/Military Friendly Services HERE, or contact the Pastoral Care Call Line at 405-235-3436. If you are in immediate need, dial 988 (Mental Health Helpline) and then press 1.  
  • Walking the Mourner's Path - Multi-session grief support classes for those experiencing a loss.

There are many and varied needs for pastoral care, and as a community we journey together through it all. Pastoral care can provide hope and solace during illness and infirmity, grief and loneliness, life’s transitions and shared experiences, and dealing with trauma. It also encompasses sharing joy-filled experiences. With prayer-filled hearts and voices, pastoral care encourages the community to live the way of Christ.

Contact the church office at 405-235-3436 for more information, to get connected with a member of the Pastoral Care Team, or to learn more about how to step intentionally into the ministry of befriending others with compassion and care.

The Pastoral Care Team exists to proclaim the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by addressing the emotional, social, and spiritual needs of the Cathedral family and wider community. For questions, contact Jani Hill, St. Paul's Resource Nurse and Pastoral Care Coordinator.
