Pastoral Care

TheReverend Andrea Thomas provides pastoral care to the friends and families of St. James.
If you or someone you know requires pastoral assistance, please contact Bishop Peter at 613-591-9268

In addition, we have a GRIEF SUPPORT LIBRARY
These booklets, books and CD’s explore the complex, and often painful, thoughts and feelings that come with loss. Whether you are saying good-bye because of a death, a move or a divorce; grief is grief. There is a full list of titles on the bulletin board in the church entrance. Our new lending library is situated in Rev Andrea’s office.

Some titles…healing a child’s heart after divorce; healing your grieving heart when someone you care about has Alzheimer’s; dispel 5 common myths about grief; helping yourself heal when a parent dies.  There are over 75 different books covering various topics!

The hands of the Father uphold you
The hands of the Saviour enfold you
The hands of the Spirit surround you
And the blessing of God Almighty
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
Uphold you evermore. Amen
