Large or small, every action taken in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ will bring human dignity and blessings both to the one being served and to the servant. Your parish is invited to offer Compassion in Action: A personal presence of compassion and understanding provided by organized and trained faithful to a person who is suffering (mentally, emotionally, physically and/or spiritually). For information about Compassion in Action: Parish Ministry Training or to obtain a Development Kit and start exploring your opportunities, please contact the Dept. of Christian Service and Humanitarian Aid or the Dept. of Institutional Chaplaincies.
