In honor of National Pastoral Care Week. held Oct. 23-27, Delaware Hospice invited Delaware’s clergy to be a part of discussion on end of life at an event held Oct. 25 at the Delaware Hospice Center in Milford.
Nearly 30 clergy members from the community participated in this year’s event. The panel consisted of Kaye Bennett, Compassionate Care Ministry at Crossroads Community Church in Georgetown; Cornelius Murphy, director of Care Ministry, Calvary Church in Dover; Sondra Satterfield, bereavement supervisor for Delaware Hospice; Yesnia Sudler, nurse at Delaware Hospice; and Rev. Jim Couzens, Lebanon Wesleyan Church in Dover.
Throughout the workshop, there was an exchange of information being shared amongst a variety of religious and congregations on how they assist with dying, death and bereavement journey.
“The event was to help facilitate a discussion amongst local religious leaders on how they manage their own personal feelings of grief, as well as provide resources to better assist their daily work,” commented Scott Edwards, chaplain and clinical supervisor. “We hope to continue to provide this particular program in the future.”
As a trusted community partner in end of life education and support in Delaware, Delaware Hospice will hold a workshop focused on the health care needs of Delaware’s Veterans at 10 a.m. Nov. 9 at the Delaware Hospice Center, 100 Patriots Way, Milford.
