Pastoral Care


Pastoral Care is a ministry of Christian presence reflecting the love and compassion of God.

Pastoral Support Services is the pastoral care provider for the Diocese of Cairns. Pastoral care support aims to respond compassionately and appropriately to the holistic needs of the sick and elderly, their families and the staff who care for them. Pastoral care staff provide emotional and spiritual support through visitation to hospitals, aged care facilities and homes within Cairns and surrounding districts.
