Pastoral Counseling

There are times in all of our lives where it helps to have a safe place to speak in confidence with someone who can be a listening ear and a resource for spiritual support. If you would like to talk with TFCE’s Rector, Rev. John Ohmer or  TFCE's Interim Priest Associate Rev. Marian Humphrey about such a matter please contact Rachael Cilladi, either by phone or email.

Private Confession

Reconciliation of a Penitent within the Episcopal Church is a sacramental rite in which those who wish to repent of their sins may confess them to God in the presence of a priest and receive the assurance of God’s pardon and the grace of absolution. If you would like to schedule a time for private confession with TFCE’s Vicar please contact The Rev. John Ohmer either by phone or by email.
