If you are in need of personal assistance, or if you are interested in learning more about the Pastoral Care Committee, email Michele Burton at burton.michelem@gmail.com

The mission of the Pastoral Care Committee (PCC) is to provide short-term relief and direct hands-on assistance to UUCV members and friends in times of crisis and need for support. The work of the PCC includes arranging for transportation to church services, delivering meals on a short-term basis after hospitalization or childbirth, providing light refreshments for celebration of life receptions, and visiting or sending notes of care to shut-ins and those in the hospital. As we care for each other, we grow and develop as a community that is grounded in the wisdom of our UU tradition. Our lives are transformed by our caring practice.

We consider helping and supporting each other to be our unique contribution to UUCV.  By offering our assistance to members and friends in need, we are practicing our second principle: justice, equity and compassion in human relations.

The strengths of the PCC are based on the efforts of our committee and the willingness of congregational members and friends to keep the minister and the PCC informed of any need for supportive services. Although the PCC is a central contact point for support services, we believe that all of our committees and our Board of Trustees are contact points for our members and friends.

The Congregation’s support of the PCC is reflected in the volunteer efforts of our congregation’s members and friends. We all need to do our part in caring for each other. If you are interested in more information, please check the UUCV website or email our Pastoral Care Committee Coordinator Michele Burton at burton.michelem@gmail.com

UUCV is an important community, both to its congregation and to the region. To maintain our viability, we rely upon the generosity of our members and friends. Please continue to offer your time, talents, and treasure in support of the church and its work.
