Session 6: Self Care
Pastoral Care and COVID-19
Session 6 of a 6 session workshop focusing on key issues for pastoral care during a time of pandemic.
What can we do to ensure that our reserves of energy, empathy, and health are not going to be run down as we try to “be there” for everyone else? While we “take steps” to preserve our community and our families, what steps need to be taken to preserve us, and why is this so important?
