Pastoral Care

pastcare200According to the 1997 USCCB document Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry, pastoral care is "a ministry of compassionate presence that enables healing and growth to take place within individuals and their relationships. It nurtures growth toward wholeness, it provides guidance in decision making and challenges obstacles to positive development."

Resources are available to all who work in ministry with children and youth to aid in fostering healthy growth and development affectively, behaviorally and cognitively.
