For a Non-Emergency
Pastoral Care appears in many forms at Saint Thomas and is offered by both lay members and by ordained ministers. Please call our office at (408) 736-4155 and speak to our administrator Anne who will direct your request to the appropriate person.
Both lay and ordained persons gladly make Hospital and Home Visits and can share healing prayer and administer communion, upon request.
Healing Services are available during most services while communion is being administered. There is also a Wednesday healing service at 12:10 P.M. in our chapel. Prayers can also be offered during each service at Saint Thomas. Prior to the service, just write your prayer request in the prayer book. An usher or greeter can direct you to this book.
The Prayer Chain is standing by to take any special requests for prayer. Whether we’re facing life’s challenges or those we love need a spiritual lift, please take the time to submit a prayer request to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Prayer Chain coordinator will follow-up with you with any additional questions or instructions for further assistance. Your prayer requests will remain confidential within the confines of the prayer chain unless you advise us otherwise.
Members of Saint Thomas, diners and volunteers of Our Daily Bread also have access to our on-site Social Worker, Cynthia Elliot. She holds her office hours on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM.
