Pastoral Care


Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is one of the most important parts of ministry.  Dr. Jean administers the sacerdotal functions (weddings, including pre-marital counseling; baby dedications, funerals, including grief counseling; and baptisms).


Dr. Jean is an insightful and creative wedding officiant. Her compassionate nature naturally puts clients at ease and helps to create a graceful ceremony. She supports marriage equality and honors all religious, spiritual and secular backgrounds.

Creating and performing wedding ceremonies is Dr. Jean’s greatest joy. Marriage is a time when two people come together and proclaim their love for one another and their desire to create a new life together. This union is a sacred event to which Dr. Jean is honored to bear witness. She also highly recommends and offers Pre-Marital Counseling.

Dr. Jean’s philosophy is that your ceremony should be an accurate reflection of your unique relationship, not just a generic script. She prides herself on working with couples to create ceremonies that are inspirational, personal, and memorable. Whether your wedding is casual or sophisticated, Dr. Jean will perform a joyful ceremony that fits your style.


Baby Dedications

It is exciting whenever a new child enters a family. There is no greater moment when parents sense that children are a blessing and gift of God (Psalm 127:3). Baby dedication is more than an event. It is an opportunity for you to take some time to consider what makes the most in the life of your child.

The birth of a child deserves to be observed in a special manner. Dr. Jean help create and conduct a special ceremony that reflects the hope, joy, and love that you harbor for your newborn or toddler.

Before the actual ceremony, pre-dedicated counseling is provided to parents about the meaning of dedication. It is an exciting honor to preside over such a joyous occasion. Contact Dr. Jean to officiate your baby dedication blessing.



Losing a family member is an emotional experience. Funeral planning can seem overwhelming and grief can make the planning process difficult. As your funeral officiant; Dr. Jean provides comfort to the family before, during, and follow-up after the funeral services. Grief counseling is also available for the bereaved to help cope with the physical, emotional, social, and cognitive responses to loss.

Dr. Jean is here to serve you and your family in your time of need. She will help you create a meaningful funeral experience that both honors the life of your love one and starts you on the path to healing from your loss. Looking for a funeral officiant; Dr. Jean is compassionate and listens with her heart.
