The Pilot - - EDITORIAL -

Pas­toral Care Week is be­ing cel­e­brated in Twill­ingate this week.

The an­nual event is an op­por­tu­nity to rec­og­nize the con­tri­bu­tion clergy and care­givers pro­vide for peo­ple in the hospi­tal and long- term care fa­cil­ity in Twill­ingate.

The theme for the week is Spir­i­tual Re­silience.

Pas­tor Ray­mond Hull, one of five clergy in the area and serves as co- chair of the Pas­toral Care com­mit­tee said, “Clergy pro­vide a vi­tal role for pa­tients and not just the clergy, but care­givers as well.”

Mem­bers of the clergy have a special treat planned for the long- term care res­i­dents and staff of Notre Dame Bay Me­mo­rial Health Cen­tre mor­row.

They will be cook­ing homemade beef stew with gar­den fresh veg­eta­bles and tou­tons for lunch. Fol­low­ing lunch, a sing- a- long will be held.

“Ev­ery­one al­ways en­joys the event,” Hull said. “It’s a good time of fel­low­ship and fun.” christy. janes@ pi­lotnl. ca to-
