We strive to meet the spiritual needs of the DPD community. This includes the people served as well as the extended DPD family - the staff, volunteers, benefactors, and the Catholic Church of Paterson.
As "pastoral minister," I try to be present to the people in the organization by visiting the group homes, Apartments and Grunert Center. We have bible study and religious activities and events. When someone has a loss to a loved one, we gather and pray together.
I work with Joanne Rossi and the other C.A.R.E volunteers who create the dynamic enviroment of our CARE group at St. Thomas the Apostle in Oak Ridge.
