Often we are not able to cure,

but we are always able to care.

To care is to be human. ~ Henri Nouwen

 

 

Holy Spirit Parish has an active ministry of pastoral care in which trained volunteers assist our priests by providing Eucharist and/or compassionate, prayerful, faith-based support to ill, home-bound, elderly, hospitalized, dying and bereaved members of our parish.  We undertake this role quietly and humbly, with a true sense of compassion and commitment to our brothers and sisters in need.  To inquire please contact the parish office at 403-251-3381 / info@holyspiritparish.net ; or contact Susan Duckett at 403-238-1803 / susaneduckett@gmail.com .

“We are pilgrims on a journey,

We are travellers on the road;

We are here to help each other

Walk the mile and bear and load.”

From “The Servant Song” by Richard Gillard.

Yours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ must look out on the world.  Yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good.  Yours are the hands with which he is to bless his people. ~ St. Teresa of Avila
