Franklin Memorial Hospital is providing a chaplain training session for interested clergy who reside in Greater Franklin County. The first meeting is being offered in conjunction with Pastoral Care Week and is scheduled for Tuesday, October 28, from 10 a.m. to noon in the Forster Room. The training will continue throughout the year on the second Tuesday of each month.
Hospital chaplains serve in an interfaith capacity, welcoming requests from people regardless of religious tradition. They provide pastoral care and counseling for the religious, spiritual, and emotional needs of patients and their families in the face of a new diagnosis, or dealing with death, grief, and loss. Other roles include exploring bio-ethical issues and providing sacraments, prayer, and scripture.
For more information or to RSVP contact the hospital’s chaplain Rev. Marriott Churchill at 779-2509 or 1-800-398-6031, ext. 2509.
