On 9th November 2019 we had a day jointly with the SVP called Christ in this Place to reflect on ministry to the sick. The day was attended by Eucharistic Ministers, SVP members and hospital chaplaincy volunteers and our input included the Healing Ministry of Christ, practical tips on visiting the sick, safeguarding the elderly, and praying with people with dementia. Many people asked for the powerpoint and handouts from the day so that they could be shared more widely. Our speakers have very kindly given permission for their work to be shared.
Here also is an introduction to prayer and sacraments for the sick and at the end of life. This causes a lot of confusion, especially in hospitals, and most Catholics don’t know some of this detail. Test your knowledge!
