Judy Pando has been a Religious Science Practitioner since 1996. Her primary focus is in the area of pastoral care. She is co-leader of the Circle of Blessings whose members are devoted to seeing the divine in everyone and in all circumstances. Knowing that life is perfect, but not always easy, it is Judy's great honor and privilege to offer spiritual and practical support to those members of our community in need and those who care for them.

Judy's ministry is about spiritual maturity. It is about transformation, awakening and allowing. It is about seeing as God sees, loving as God loves. It's about connecting, heart to heart, mind to mind, and soul to soul; holding one hand at a time.
