Social Services Outreach
Saint Pauls Food Pantry

St Paul’s Pantry was founded in May of 2014 by the Order of St Dymphna in response to a growing need to help with the hungry and needy of the city of East Ridge. With a little fund raising and a lot of planning and hard work the order created a ministry that supplies food boxes for families in need.

In the future the order plans on helping other churches reach out to their community with their formula for low cost high quality boxes of supplies ranging from food to hygiene products.
Pastoral & Spiritual Counseling

Pastoral counseling is a branch of counseling in which psychologically trained ministersor priests provide spiritual therapy services.

Pastoral counselors often integrate modern psychological thought and method with traditional religious training in an effort to address psychospiritual issues in addition to treatment of issues like addiction, since spirituality is an important part of recovery for many people.

Spiritual life coaching is a form of development in which a person called a spirtual mentor supports a learner or client in achieving a specific personal or professional goal by providing spiritual or holistic training, advice and guidance. 
Community Chaplaincy

Community Chaplains reside in the community and are models for the community of what neighboring looks like. The Christian mandate, as well as the spiritual directives of other faith traditions, places love for our neighbors in the same category as our love for God. 

Community chaplains have a strategic opportunity to challenge our established churches regarding the importance of being good neighbors to the local neighborhood where their church facilities are located.

Law Enforcement Chaplains

Law enforcement chaplains serve in local, county, state and federal agencies and provide a variety of services within the law enforcement community. 

The law enforcement chaplain offers support to law enforcement officers, administrators, support staff, victims and their families, and occasionally even the families of accused or convicted offenders.

Law enforcement chaplaincy is a ministry of presence, LEO chaplains must have the proper training if they are working with law enforcement officers, the thin blue line is very real. 

Fire Department Chaplains

Chaplains working with fire departments provide the same kind of support to firefighters as do chaplains working with law enforcement, and sometimes face even greater danger, working with the wounded in often very dangerous surroundings.

Corporate Chaplaincy

Corporate Chaplains are comforters, pastors, teachers, and counselors. They are creative and understanding as they demonstrate God’s grace and love in ministering to people at manufacturing sites, recreational sites, business offices, corporation headquarters, and in community settings.
