St. Mary’s shepherds are laity who keep in touch with a particular segment of the congregation. They function much like a neighborhood watch. Upon learning that one of “their” households is experiencing a situation for which pastoral support might be helpful, shepherds make contact and offer the services of St. Mary’s clergy and various pastoral support ministries.

If you would like someone to talk to for guidance (click here for a list of St. Mary’s pastoral care programs), please contact a shepherd. One shepherd per group takes turns each month to be “on call.”
