Pastoral Care

If you would like more information or to volunteer for one of these groups, please contact The Rev. Ann McLemore.

Hospital Visitation
Parishioners volunteer to visit members of the parish who are in local hospitals. If you are interested in this ministry email The Rev. Ann McLemore or call the church office at 601-982-4880.

Long-term Pastoral Care
Peggy Van Cleve is our long-term pastoral care volunteer. Each week she sends service leaflets, sermons, goodies, etc. to those who are unable to come to church. If you know someone who should be added to Peggy’s Long-term Pastoral Care list, please email Kathy Stephens or call the church office at 601-982-4880.

Pastoral Care Teams
These teams are the heart and soul of the Pastoral Care Commission. There are 5 teams consisting of 10-15 persons with a captain. Each team is responsible for 7 days of care to parishioners in need. During your week, the team will be responsible for seeing that care is given to parishioners who have been released from the hospital or who are at home recovering from illness or providing support for families in times of sorrow or crisis. If there is a funeral during your team’s week, visitation at the church will be provided for the family. If you know someone who might need care from our Pastoral Care teams, please email The Rev. Ann McLemore , Kathy Stephens, or call the church office at 601-982-4880.

Prayer Chain
The Prayer Chain is a ministry consisting of a committed group of parishioners who offer intercessory prayer upon request. If you would like to add someone to the Prayer Chain or would like to join contact Kathy Stephens or call the church office at 601-982-4880.

Shawl Ministry
Knitters & crocheters gather to knit, crochet, and share stories on the second Monday of each month from 2-4 pm in the Guild Parlor.  Everyone is welcome to join!

Daughters of the King
Daughters of the King is a national order of female Episcopalians participating in a prayerful journey, which emphasizes service.  An order is a community under a religious rule; especially one requiring members to take solemn vows to follow the Rule of Prayer and Rule of Service.  Each daughter completes a new member course before installation.

We currently meet on the first Wednesday on every month at 6 pm in the Library.  If you have a question or would like more information on joining Daughters of the King please feel free to contact Helen Graham (President) or the Rev. Ann McLemore (Chaplain).
