A new aspect of our caring community is the presence among us of 11 lay pastoral care associates. At the April 8 Sunday services, the ministers formally commissioned them as the Pastoral Team. They have completed special training, have agreed to meet monthly for additional training, and are committed to serving this congregation for the next two years as members of the First Unitarian Pastoral Team. They’ll be readily recognizable on Sunday mornings by the “Pastoral Team” ribbon on their name badges.
