Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care at All Saints’

We are all fortunate to be members of All Saints’ family.

We are available for each other “when things fall apart”. 

We are here to help in various ways at times of crisis, illness and need, even if not long term.

The Pastoral Care Committee coordinates these various services:

  • Prayers 
  • Meals – Coordinator Jennifer Adams
  • Prayer Shawls – Coordinator Ann Laughner  
  • Cards – Coordinator Sandy Feyrer
  • Transportation – Coordinator Tim McKeithan
  • Home visits by parishioners, Pastor, LEMs- Pastoral Care Coordinators

All of the above can be accessed by contacting either of the Pastoral Care Coordinators: Roisin McKeithan, Donna Magruder 

You can also contact Jenn Swaringen, our Parish Administrator, during office hours (8am-1pm, M-Th) – (252) 261-6674.

If a parishioner is aware of another who is perhaps in a difficult or different situation, please check with them to find out if they have needs that Pastoral Care should be aware of and let one of us know as appropriate.  

If anyone is interested in providing care in any of the ways above, please contact the lead person listed or Donna or Roisin. Our Pastor can be contacted directly, or through Jenn Swaringen or the Pastoral Care Coordinators. 

Asking for Prayers at All Saints

There are 3 avenues to ask for prayers for oneself or for another. If for another person(s), the request should be approved by them.

Healing/Prayer Team

Healing/Prayer teams are available during Communion on Sundays.  If preferred, a written prayer request card (found in back pocket on chairs) may be filled out and placed in Collection plate. The Healing/Prayer team members on that day will pray with you, or for request on card. These requests and prayers are completely CONFIDENTIAL, between you and team.

If desired or appropriate, these prayer requests could be shared with the Pastor. The Healing team is made up of parishioners who feel called to this ministry. We meet on the 2nd Saturday morning of each month (except in summer) and are always eager for new members. Contact Donna Magruder or Barbara White for more information.

Prayer Chain (Telephone)

One can also request CONFIDENTIAL prayers at any time from the telephone Prayer Chain. As above, if prayer request is for another person(s), the request should be approved by them. The Prayer Chain is made up of parishioners who feel called to this ministry.    

To start the Chain, call either: Gary or Carole Kimmel or Joe or Mary Lou Beckett

The Kimmels and Becketts will call those next on chain, and all will be praying for your concerns.

Prayers of the People 

As a congregation, we pray for those names placed on the Prayers of the People list. To be placed on list, please call our Parish Administrator Jenn Swaringen at the office: (252) 261-6674. You may also write your request in the folder on table in Narthex. 

Please put both the names of those needing prayer, and who is requesting it, if different. Also, please note the duration of request, if none is noted, names will be removed after a month or so. Please remember if any prayer request is for another person, it should be approved by that person.

If you have questions call either of the Pastoral Care Coordinators: Roisin McKeithan or Donna Magruder 

Our Pastor can be contacted directly, or through Jenn Swaringen or the Pastoral Care Coordinators.
