Hornell’s St. James Mercy Health System acknowledged Pastoral Care Week Oct. 24-30 with a series of events.
Activities at St. James Mercy included a spiritual book and gift sale, as well as spiritual care open houses. The focus of this year’s Pastoral Care Week was “Imagining Peace.”
Originated in the 1980s, Pastoral Care Week celebrates the work of pastoral caregivers of all faiths. This observance is sponsored by the COMISS Network: The Network on Ministry in Specialized Settings, a national coalition devoted to chaplaincy and pastoral care.
