Pastoral Care Course
Pastoral Care is the unconditional caring response to the lonely, shut-ins, the sick and dying to meet their spiritual needs, being respectful of their own religious beliefs and practice. This course will introduce you to the basic visiting skills for visiting in the health care facilities or parish.
Bereavement Education Program
The Bereavement Program will teach you the skills to offer your presence and support in a caring way. The grieving may include your family, friends, or colleagues on their grief journey.
Palliative Care Education Program
Palliative care is the active, compassionate care of a person whose disease is no longer responsive to traditional treatment aimed at cure. The goal of palliative care is to promote quality of life through the control of symptoms, whether they be physical, psychological, social, or spiritual.
Health Care Facilities
Courage & Encourage
This apostolate is made up of respectively two spiritual support groups helping Catholic men and women; and their families; to live in accordance with the Catholic Church's pastoral teaching on homosexuality or same sex attraction.
Grieving a Miscarriage & Stillborn
When families lose a baby in the womb, the cries of birth go unheard; the grasp of tiny fingers slips away. This profound loss needs articulation. Join us in a prayer gathering to commend our children communally into the embrace of our merciful God and to support those who are grieving the loss of a child.
