When Jesus of Nazareth asked His followers to go out and heal the sick, he was speaking literally. Both then and now. A healthy, alive parish engages in healing ministry to those who are sick, alone, disabled, suffering from depression or the loss of a loved one.

The Ministry of Care is directed to the “whole person”, recognizing and responding to the emotional, social, spiritual and physical needs with absolute respect for the dignity of each person.

Now, this manual can help parishes develop their own systematic program to reach out to the sick and disabled in their own communities. This step-by-step process, designed through extensive experimentation in real parishes in Saskatchewan, can engage parishioners in this indispensable ministry to those around them. In the process, it will foster new enthusiasm for and commitment to parish life.

Full of inspiring reflections, relevant Scripture passages, easy-to-follow instructions and guidelines, this resource can make the healing ministry of Jesus come alive in your parish.
