St. Cyprian's provides comfort, encouragement and support to all of its members through various ministries of care and concern within the Parish. Pastoral Care ministries send parishioners out to call on other parishioners. The result is a wide reaching blessing hand during times of great joy and times of great sorrow.

Daughers of the King, St. Teresa of Avila chapter
The Order of the Daughters of the King® (DOK) is a spiritual sisterhood of women dedicated to a life of Prayer, Service and Evangelism. We have made a commitment to Jesus as our Savior, and we follow Him as Lord of our lives. We are an Order for women who are communicants of the Episcopal Church, churches in communion with it, or churches in the Historic Episcopate. Today our membership includes women in the Anglican, Episcopal, Lutheran (ELCA) and Roman Catholic churches.
St. Cyprian’s Chapter of DOK is committed to pray for those who ask. Our discipline is to pray daily for the rector and the parishioners who are on the church and confidential DOK list. If a parishioner wants the DOK to pray for them, confidentially they can complete a prayer card in the Narthex, and place in the locked box. We also provide service as the rector calls us to do to those in the parish. Evangelism is also part of our role as we wear a Greek cross as our ‘habit’ to demonstrate Christ’s light to the world.

Lay Eucharistic Visitors
The clergy and lay pastoral ministers of St. Cyprian's Church visit hospitalized and shut-in parishioners to bring them news of the parish, to pray with them, and to administer the elements of Holy Eucharist. Each is a reminder of God's aiding presence through the hands and feet of His lay ministers in the parish.
