This facet of Cathedral life has several parts:
a) Card Ministry
Members of this group send out cards to parishioners who may be experiencing any of the following: housebound, senior, ill, suffering from bereavement, in transition, having an anniversary of baptism or of death.
b) Flower Ministry
This group takes flowers from the altar on Sundays and delivers them to parishioners who are seniors, housebound or ill.
c) Seniors’ Homes Services
Each month services of Holy Eucharist are held at 2:30 p.m. at these three homes; Chartwell, Extendicare and Kensington Village. Parishioners assist at these services as readers, servers and pianists.
d) Hospital Visiting
This is carried out mainly by Deacon Pat Henderson who regularly visits London hospitals. Other clergy visit hospitals as needed or requested.
e) Pastoral Visitation
This is carried out by all four members of the Clergy Team as per request or other conditions dictate.
