Caritas is co-pastored by Tim and Melissa Morral.

TIM is a writer and speaker focused on contemporary Christian spirituality and contemplative practices. He semi-routinely blogs at www.GranolaSoul.com, and his current interests include making and playing folk/electric instruments in the Americana folk tradition. Tim holds Master of Divinity and Doctor of Divinity in Transformative Leadership degrees from Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School.

MELISSA has held a range of leadership roles in the church and community that allowed her to walk alongside people from many different backgrounds and faith traditions. As a mother and former teacher, she is passionate about exploring new models of church and ministry for future generations. Melissa holds a Master of Divinity and is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry degree from Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School.

At Caritas, everyone has an equal voice and shares responsibility for supporting the growth and well being of the other members of our faith community.

In collaboration with community members and our board of directors, our pastors are responsible for helping us put our values into action through a variety of educational and service activities. Our pastors also have responsibility for our worship activities and sacraments like weddings and baptisms
