Pastor welcomes walk-ins for pastoral care, but since he might be on visits to the homebound, hospitalized, etc. it is wise to call ahead to make sure he is in. He would be happy to make an appointment with you during normal office hours or in the evening. Pastor also offers Individual Confession and Absolution as desired.
