News from the UUCRT Caring Ministry – What we do!

The Caring Ministry provides short-term, physical help to individuals and families within our congregation who are in need. While we cannot offer emergency or ongoing services, we can offer our collective love through support with: short term meals, rides for medical appointments, check-ins for those who feel isolated, cards for celebrations, as well as hardships, connection for those going through a difficult time.

Because it is sometimes difficult to ask for help, the Caring Ministry relies upon our entire congregation to identify and communicate the needs of our parishioners. We work with Rev. Diane in confidence, to coordinate care.

If you, or if you know of anyone needing help, please reach out to Linda Manglesdorf or Rev. Diane, who can be reached by email: ddiachishin@gmail.com If you are in need of assistance please contact: aa.uucrt@gmail.com or info.uucrt@gmail.com
