All Souls Care

It is a priority of ours, as a church family, to care for one another. Much of that care is offered informally, through the friendships shared among parishioners. We also have some more structured ways to care for one another:

Care CardsCare Cards Image

A group of All Souls parishioners send cards to those on our prayer list and others in need of consolation or congratulations.  Happy or sad, we let them know everyone at All Souls Episcopal Church is praying for them and wishing them well.  If you know someone who could use a card or if you would like to join our Care Card ministry, please let us know. Email Jeffrey Hunter (jhunter@aacap.org).

Prayer List

Our prayer list appears in our weekly announcements and is emailed each Thursday.  The names on the prayer list are read out during the Prayers of the People during Sunday Mass. To include someone in this listing, please call or email the parish office. Names stay on the prayer list for one month unless the parish office is notified that they should stay on longer. Email Grace Kreher.

Pastoral Care

eminister-300x213In a more limited way during the pandemic, clergy visit with those in the hospital and those who are homebound, taking Holy Communion, and offering prayers for healing, and simple conversation.  At church, at home, or over the phone, clergy may hear confessions and give absolution, anoint for healing, and anoint and pray at the time of death.  To request pastoral care from a priest, please call the parish office 202-232-4244 or EMAIL US. We have no priests on staff as we now journey toward the appointing of an interim priest; however, one of our volunteer priests may be able to assist you in pastoral care when their schedules permit. 

 

Healing Ministry

Several All Souls parishioners are trained as healing ministers. If you would like Nancy AherneAl Muller, or Lisa Watson to join you in a virtual, one-to-one healing rite, please contact them via email. Prior to the pandemic, healing ministers were available at both services on the first Sunday of each month in the Mary Chapel during the administration of Holy Communion for prayer, laying of hands for healing, and anointing with holy oil.  And our Low Mass on Wednesdays at Noon included prayers for healing with prayer, laying of hands for healing, and anointing with holy oil.

All Souls would like to help train volunteers as Lay Eucharistic Visitors. If you have been a LEV in the past or in another parish and would like to be a part of this ministry at All Souls, please call or email the rector. Email Father Jadon.
