The Mother Angeline Ministries of Care is a volunteer parish outreach program to the sick and homebound which promotes the ideals and values of our Foundress, Mother M. Angeline Teresa, O.Carm. The program, begun under the inspiration of Joan and Bill Nelson, involves extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist in four parishes in New Hampshire.
Through a series of training sessions, Ministers of Care enhance their skills in providing a spiritual support and a caring presence to the homebound, sick and hospitalized. Training includes sessions on Mother Angeline's philosophy of care, understanding memory and physical impairment, the needs of elders living in the community, life review and reminiscing, spirituality of aging, compassionate listening and visits and the impact of family dynamics on relationships with the homebound individual. Another module of training will involve visits to the dying.
