Parishioners who engage in this ministry work feel joy at being able to connect with people in need and in being able to offer support on a continuing basis.
Presently the Diocesan website, at www.hamiltondiocese.com has information on Palliative Care and we will soon complete a section for Care Ministry, one that will offer supports and suggestions on how to reach out. With so many aging and sick people, in a world where globalization may mean families are not close by, it is time each of us reached out to support others, helping them see that they are indeed part of a larger community family.
Let us consider the words of Martin Luther King: Life’s most persistent and urgent question is what are we doing for others? The answer we provide can make all the difference in the lives of those we touch.
