Pastoral care resource.

If you or your church is aiming to offer pastoral care training, you might want to check out an extensive new manual by Janet Stark.

Stark is spiritual care manager and chaplain at Brockville General Hospital and lay minister at St. Paul's, Kemptville, Ont.

Her 570-page resource is designed to be used by members of any denomination and is based on the "Good Samaritan principle," she said. "Spiritual care means nurturing the spirit and we're using all Christian ethics and principles to train people to provide that care."

She said trainers could pick and choose which sections would be most useful to them in their context. In addition to the manual, which is available as a free download, trainers can purchase a CD containing 16 PowerPoint presentations and 10 suggested lesson plans for $25. Visit stpaulskemptville.ca for more details.
