Pastoral Care and Reconciliation

flowersPastoral Care

At the heart of our life as a faith community lies the commitment and responsibility to care for, support, and encourage one another, especially in times of crisis and difficulty. We do this in a variety of ways here at St. David’s. We want you to know what they are so that when you or a family member or friend are dealing with serious life changes or challenges, you can get the help you need.

For more information, to request services, or to volunteer, contact the Rev. Katie Wright.

Prayer Requests: We have many groups who pray daily for those in need as well as prayers we offer during Sunday morning services. Click here to submit a prayer request for yourself or a loved one.

Prayer Shawls:  The prayer shawls are knitted by members of the St. Agnes Guild. Prayer Shawls can be given to someone who is struggling physically, spiritually, or emotionally.

Veterans Guitar Group: This free music therapy program is open to all Veterans, Veterans’ family members, and the St. David’s community. All are welcome to make music with us. Contact group leader Lynn Smith-Henry.

Reconciliation

Our priests offer the Reconciliation of a Penitent or Sacrament of Reconciliation at any time, but especially during the season of Lent and Advent. Please see page 446 in the Book of Common Prayer for more information about this pastoral office. If you are interested in a private, confidential meeting with a priest to confess your sins and to be assured of God’s absolution, please contact the priest of your choice. You may call the main number 512-610-3500 and leave a message for the priest on call, or email the Rev. Katie Wright.
