For pastoral emergencies, such as a death in the family, please email  emergencies@romemu.org or call  (212) 580-4294, ext 813 and leave a message. 

For pastoral care please email pastoral@romemu.org and you will be contacted by one of the pastoral clergy members. 

Pastoral Care is a model of spiritual and emotional support in which clergy members  support people in their pain, loss, and anxiety, as well as in their joys and blessings. It’s a holistic approach that focuses on guiding, supporting, healing and empowering people to draw upon spiritual resources. It is not psychotherapy, although clergy may refer individuals to therapists. Sessions last for 45-50 minutes, are usually limited to two consecutive visits, and are intended for Romemu members only.  Since our clergy acts as a team, any one of our pastoral clergy may meet with you. However, the clergy meets weekly as a team to confidentially discuss  pastoral cases. So although you will only be meeting with one member of the team, you will have the benefit of the expertise of the whole pastoral team to support you.
