The Caring for the Whole Person Initiative, in partnership with your local diocese, is hosting a five-part virtual training on how to care for parishioners and support families through serious illness. Topics include Catholic Moral Teaching Around Serious Illness and End-of-Life issues, Caring for Parishioners through Serious Illness, Advance Care Planning, Palliative and Hospice Care, and Parish as a Loving Community.
The training sessions will take place over Zoom on Wednesday evenings from August 17 to September 14 at 6:00 to 8:00 PM. The training is open to all active parish ministers/volunteers in California and recommended for those in pastoral care ministries such as Eucharistic Ministers to the Sick and Homebound, Stephens Ministers, Knights of Malta, Parish Nurses, St. Vincent De Paul, etc.
The Caring for the Whole Person Initiative is a statewide partnership between the bishops and Catholic health systems of California, which seeks to ensure that parishioners and family members are accompanied, loved, and supported during serious illness, their end-of-life journey and/or other times when medical and spiritual support is needed.
