Pastoral Care for young people involves providing a compassionate presence in their lives. We seek to care for young people in moments of crisis, promote healthy human development, and reduce at-risk behaviors. Pastoral Care promotes health and growth in the midst of community and nurtures wholeness, discernment and guidance as young people face the issues of their lives.
