The goal of Paracletia, Inc. is to serve as a conduit of grace to comfort the spirit, nurture hope, and represent the presence of a loving God within a multi-cultural, ecumenical environment. 


Paracletia, Inc. was created to provide confidential, compassionate pastoral care that can be missing in today's society. Those who have experienced loss often feel isolated, alone, devalued and unimportant to God. The thought that "God does not care for me" is seldom voiced, but often affects the individual's interpersonal relationships at home and at work.
