The renewal of the church and of the liturgy brought about by the Second Vatican Council has prompted a wonderful activity in parishes: Ordinary parishioners are visiting those who cannot come to the Sunday assembly. The sick, the elderly, the homebound, the imprisoned - joined to the parish by these ministers of care are nourished as members of Christ's body with word and sacrament. And the bonds of charity are strengthened.
This is a manual for those already involved in the ministry of care, and for those preparing to undertake this vital work. Here you will learn:
