Pastoral Care is offered to all – whether you are thinking of visiting us for the first time, wanting to become a member of First Parish in Waltham, or are a long-time member of our congregation.

In offering pastoral care to one another, we affirm that “you will be cared for, and you will be called to care for others.” In the spirit of affirming that connection, First Parish in Waltham has a Lay Pastoral Care team who work with the ministers to visit those with illness or who are experiencing challenges in life. The ministers are also available to support members through times of loss, trauma, illness and hospitalization, or through life’s most tender moments.

You can reach a member of the Lay Pastoral Care Team by emailing and pastor Deborah Weiner, Transitional Ministry Associate, at: .
