Pastoral Partners offer spiritual, physical and emotional support to those experiencing difficult life circumstances.  They are the first point of contact for those that express a need, then facilitate deeper levels of care.  
 
Pastoral Partners are volunteers that receive specialized training in the areas of listening, prayer, appropriate boundaries, and the resources provided by MCC and those available in the community at large.  They also contact those that are homebound to listen, pray and support.
