When You Need To Reach The Clergy for Pastoral Care

Timely and compassionate pastoral care for you and your family is very important to the clergy of All Souls. We would like you to know that if you or a family member have a pastoral care need during business hours you may reach a clergy member by calling the business office at 828-274-2681. Please tell the person you are speaking with that you are calling for pastoral care and that you need to speak to a clergy person . You will be asked if your need is urgent; please let them know it is if you have need to speak with or see a clergy person right away and they will contact the clergy person on call. If it is not urgent you will be directed to the clergy person’s voicemail. If your pastoral care need is after hours please call the clergy direct. We ask you to please call both clergy persons with your need so that we can insure a timely response. We know that it can be difficult to name your need as urgent, even when it is so, but please know that the staff and clergy value pastoral care that is accessible and thus we appreciate you reaching out to us when in urgent need . You can reach Rev. Dean Todd Donatelli by calling 828-231-4958 and you can reach Rev. Milly Morrow by calling 828-772-1429. Thank you.

Education for Ministry is a four year program that on the surface is a study and discussion of the Old and New Testaments, Church History, and Theology - but under that is a loving, caring group that learns together, grows together and finds their ministry together. The Theological reflection is mainstay of EFM, and teaches us all to think theologically about our lives. Our group begins the first Wednesday in September (6:30pm to 9pm) and meets weekly until the last week of May. Tables will be set up outside of the church, between the services, the 1st and 2nd weekend of June. Stop by and meet Steve and Pam Van Allen, you can see the books used, ask questions and if you like enroll.
