E-Care is an email-based ministry of prayer. E-Care members receive periodic email messages containing requests for prayer for those experiencing illness, grief, joy, or other life events.
Those who subscribe to E-Care receive about three email messages a week containing requests for prayer from or on behalf of parishioners. Subscribers need only pray in response to messages. To subscribe to E-Care, please send an email to the following email address with "subscribe" in the subject line:
Prayer requests are managed through the clergy and church office with lay operators taking turns managing messages a month at a time. E-Care operators also request volunteers to deliver E-Meals to persons identified through the E-Care Ministry.
Hi, I'm Ann Stuart Pearce. Here at All Saints, praying for one another is foundational. We pray together during church and we pray privately at home. In addition, we use E-Care, an email-based prayer ministry, to pray for parishioners and others who are ill, have died, have a new baby, or have experienced another significant life event.
First, our clergy determine if a parishioner would like to be prayed for. If the answer is yes, an email message is sent to about 230 parishioners and staff, requesting their prayers. If you subscribe to E-Care, your only role is to offer prayers of intercession or thanksgiving. On average, subscribers receive about two messages a week.
E-Care is a powerful way for us to support each other in the parish family. If you would like to be a part of the E-Care network, click on the link or call the church office.
I have found that regularly receiving E-Care emails helps me hold parishioners in my heart with intention. It's also comforting to know that when I have been in need, my parish family is lifting me up. I encourage you to join us on E-Care.
