Clergy Outreach Initiative 

Grief Picture 
You are called to the bedside of a dying congregant. 
What do you do?  
What do you say?

This initiative is a series of  four 2-hour seminars developed to help clergy minister to congregants who are facing a life-limiting illness, end of life, or grief.  The philosophy of hospice and concept of palliative care will be explored. Specific topics include:

  • Theoretical foundations of death, dying and bereavement;
  • Ethical, moral and legal issues surrounding end of life;
  • Cultural considerations of those who are dying, their families, and those who are bereaved;
  • Communication techniques that have proven to help the dying and the bereaved;
  • Fears of those who are dying and those who are left behind;
  • Unusual communications often used by those who are dying;
  • Spiritual care during the final hours of life.
