Ministries of Compassion
Love - caritas - will always prove necessary, even in the most just society. There is no ordering of the State so just that it can eliminate the need for a service of love. ... There will always be suffering which cries out for consolation and help. There will always be loneliness. There will always be situations of material need where help in the form of concrete love of neighbour is indespensible. ... The Church ... is alive with the love enkindled by the Spirit of Christ. This love does not simply offer people material help, but refreshment and care for their souls, something which often is even more necessary than material support. (POPE BENEDICT XVI in Deus Caritas Est.)
At St. George's, we have a group of volunteers committed to ensuring that all those who are in need of spiritual healing are ministered to. This includes visiting the sick and shut-ins in their homes and in our nursing homes, and supporting those who are mourning.
