Rideout Health Celebrates Supportive Presence: Pastoral Care Week 2012

Rideout Health honors the contributions of the dedicated pastoral care givers who offer a supportive presence to the women, men, children, and organizations in our community during Pastoral Care Week, October 21-27, 2012.

Each day pastoral care givers are invited into the life experiences of women, men, children, and organizations.

Pastoral caregivers bring many gifts to the process of healing and wholeness. They are trained to be a supportive presence to help individuals know they are not alone as they express their feelings, thoughts and questions. Being a supportive presence reassures the person struggling with illness and injury that someone is beside them as they walk through dark valleys.

"When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares." -Henri Nouwen (Out of Solitude)

Held first in 1984, Pastoral Care Week is sponsored by the Coalition on Ministry in Specialized Settings Network (COMISS) a national organization of pastoral care providers, pastoral care professionals, and faith group endorsers. The weeklong observance promotes spiritual values as a part of the healing process and invites us to celebrate the work of caregivers in such settings as hospitals, prisons, mental health facilities, nursing homes, counseling centers, etc.
