Wednesday March 13  2019: Pastoral Care: Daring to be with Others.  Sr Margaret Ghosn, Maronite Sister of the Holy Family, Master of Theology, Master of Education, Bachelor of Theology, Bachelor of Science (Hons). 
Margaret’s book The Miracle of Love (2018) notes that the essential element that makes a helpful pastoral intervention in people’s lives is love for them. How do we care for people, what do we do or say, how do we deal with our own demons and what happens when we are overwhelmed or paralysed by the pain or beauty of the lives of those we care for? Pastoral caring is often a slow process requiring patience, honesty, authenticity and being at home with silence. These themes and many more will be explored in this workshop.
Wednesday March 13  2019, 5 pm for 5.30pm – 7.30 pm at Transforming Practices Rooms, Library underneath the church, 29 Oxford Street, Epping.
