The purpose of the Sunshine Committee is to let each parishioner know that someone from Resurrection Catholic Church is thinking of them during their time of joy, sickness or death of a family member.
The Parish Nurse for Resurrection Catholic Church and Trinity Ecumenical Parish is also employed by Carilion Clinic.
Ministry of Caring (MOC): coordinates care for both Resurrection Catholic Church and Trinity Ecumenical Parish. There are about 40 MOC leaders that help serve a geographical area. In a time of need (illness, recent surgery), MOC can assist with: Running errands, doctor visits, meals, light housekeeping, light maintenance, or respite care (visiting a person), so family can get out/run errands, etc. There is medical equipment available that may be borrowed as needed: wheelchairs, walkers, bedside commodes, crutches, canes, knee walkers, shower chairs, and other small equipment items. Please call if you have a need, to know who your MOC leader is.
If you or someone you know should be checked on (with their approval), please call the nurse. I am always willing to pray for/with someone.

Pastoral Care Team Mission Statement
“We, the Resurrection Pastoral Care Team, provide support, comfort and prayer to parishioners and their families in times of stress, loss, crisis or life changing events. In responding to Jesus' call to be good shepherds and share God's love, we provide a non-judgmental listening presence in the strictest confidence.”
Members of the PCT can be identified at church by the “sky blue” name tag they wear. If you, or someone you love, might benefit from this ministry, you can contact Deacon Barry, talk with a PCT minister, or place a request for assistance in the prominently marked locked box on the table in the commons.
