 Hand in Hand – Pastoral Care Team

Five lay persons attended a pastoral care training workshop at Five Oaks Retreat Centre, Paris, Ontario.  The Program was to aid churches in setting up a pastoral care team to work with the minister in visiting those people in need.  The Workshop outline ways to recruit people to the team, how to conduct visits, ways to be aware of appropriate boundaries as well as self care for the team.  The leadership training team was excellent and provided a wide range of suggestions, ideas, role-playing, how to lead into prayer and how to ‘feel’ when it is time to bring the visit to an end.   Now the challenge begins as we put our new-found knowledge to the test as we develop and build a Pastoral Care Team at Trinity.Five Oaks Retreat
