Pastoral Care ministry provides an environment where the dignity of each person is reverenced and a spirit of openness to persons, ideas, and new ways of thinking and being will be a focus of our daily experience. In this environment, the dignity of each person is respected and the spiritual and emotional lives of the campus community are enriched.
Pastoral Care provides for the enrichment of the spiritual and emotional lives of Maria College’s staff, faculty, and students, respectful of their cultural and religious backgrounds.
