We invite you to become a part of Bishop Anderson House Spiritual Care Visitor Training
Participants gather for an innovative one-day retreat which will include a time of spiritual reflection, followed by workshops that will explore how to be an “active listener” and the particular concerns of providing spiritual care with those who are dying. Lunch will also be served.
The program continues for six months as each participant will be offered a set of 7 online modules to take at his or her own pace. The online modules are recorded, live presentations by seasoned practitioners from a variety of disciplines.
An integral part of the program is completing 2 hours per week providing spiritual care in a self-selected site (a congregation, nursing home, or hospital are a few options). Participants are required to be supervised by their faith community leader or a professional in the field.
To facilitate further learning and growth, a monthly online-chat will be offered for participants to process the modules and to ask questions that may arise from spiritual care visits.
