Pastoral Care is not for everyone so care must be taken at both the parish and institutional level (hospital, nursing home etc.) that those engaged in this ministry are carefully selected and properly trained.
For many years the Ottawa Pastoral Care Training courses sponsored by The Christian Council of the Capital Area have been providing excellent training for this ministry.
Anglicans from the Diocese of Ottawa played an instrumental role in the creation of this program and have been involved ever since.
Basic Courses are offered in both the spring and the fall of each year in Ottawa East and Ottawa West locations. Advanced Courses are also offered periodically.
