    Pastoral Care For those in vulnerable Situations

    Pastoral care can be valuable for all people, including those in vulnerable situations. Join us for a panel discussion with individuals who have significant expertise in offering pastoral care to those who are often ignored or hidden to us.

    This conversation will touch on experiences and tools that can benefit all those who are involved in pastoral care.

    Featuring:

    • Don Storsz , Author of Glimpses of Grace
    • Hilary Murray , Chaplain for Cornerstone Housing for Women
    • Robert MacKenzie , Chair of the Ottawa Pastoral Care Advisory Board

    A certificate will be issued at the end of the course for those who attend 7 or more of the 9 classes. It is important to attend the first two classes. If, for some reason, you miss the first two classes, you will need to re-register for a future course.



    A certificate will be issued at the end of the course for those who attend 3 or more of the 4 classes.
