Our congregation has several trained lay members, called Pastoral Associates (PA), who act in a support role to congregants, helping them celebrate life’s joys as well as helping to navigate challenges.  Each PA keeps in touch with those members for whom they are responsible, offering support when needed.  Our minister offers more extensive pastoral counseling services; and during times that we are not served by a minister, arrangements for pastoral counseling and services can be made with other Unitarian Universalist ministers.
