Spiritual Care Visitor Training will be held at Bishop Anderson House offices this winter.
Please join us on Saturday, February 1 for the initial one-day retreat, which includes 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. The retreat runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and lunch will also be served.
The program will continue 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. Throughout the course time, monthly “chats with a chaplain” will be offered by videoconferencing.
Applicants shall confer with their faith leader for supervision during the course and recommendation to participate.
Application period will be from December 1 to January 15.
