The ministry of presence in the pastoral care of the sick, the dying, and the bereaved

This event has ended

Led by: Fr Joseph McCullough

Pastoral ministry to the sick, the dying and the bereaved, is a defining task of Christian discipleship. This reflection will seek to explore the environment from which a person may draw physical, emotional and spiritual sustenance from wholistic pastoral practice. It will focus on how the practice of pastoral presence can be shared with the sick and dying person through prayer, service, silence, touch, empathy and listening.

Starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm. Please bring a packed lunch.

Cost: £30
