Essay on pastoral care

Dr. Greg Popcak, HACS MAPS Program Director said, “Today, Life Coaches are stepping in to do a great deal of the work that pastors, marriage and family life ministers, youth ministry professionals, bereavement ministers, and other pastoral care workers have done in the past; supporting people in becoming a better, more grace-filled versions of themselves. We want graduates who pursue this path to see themselves as the soul of the life coaching profession.  I’m excited that HACS MAPS grads are being prepared to enter this field equipped with both the timeless wisdom of our Catholic faith and the knowledge of the ‘science of accompaniment’ that the coaching profession provides.  Whether they serve the Church or their local communities, MAPS graduates who become Board Certified Life Coaches will be well-prepared to facilitate the growth and development of the whole person.”

Even when the ashes are interred, I think something is lost. When a body is buried after a funeral, the imemediate family are surrounded by the wider family, their circle of friends, & their church community. Days or weeks later, when the ashes are being buried, there is usually only a woefully small number present. Some of the loved ones have remarked to me that it is like having the funeral all over again … but this time without the same level of support. Pastorally, I find it a rather poor idea. The ‘closure’ gained at the funeral is lost & the wounds are reopened.

A further important part of Pastoral support is provided by the full time Education Welfare Office (EWO), Jo Robson. The EWO monitors absence and punctuality and also provides support for students who may need the involvement of external agencies.
At Lord Lawson we also have a Student Support Department. Staff within this area offer support to students before, during and after school. Opportunities exist for students to be supported in a quiet location with their academic studies as well as access to staff who are experienced in supporting students with any emotional and/or social needs. This will include providing students, who may have been absent for a period of time, with a structured re-integration to Academy life. The work of this team is fully complemented by the Special Education Needs Department who can provide a range of different strategies to support students with Special Educational Needs. The range of strategies available include one-to-one tuition, small group work and in-class support.
We have a fully staffed Health Unit which is supported by the school Nurse who holds a drop-in once a week during lunchtime within the school and many students take up this facility. Appointments can also be made at other times.

However, Mr. Anderson argues, because the Catholic Church and its charities are so ingrained in the . government’s welfare system, it’s hard to reform and better it. For example, in 1996 Catholic Charities lobbied heavily against welfare-reform law and met with then-President Clinton to help derail it. At the time, a Jesuit priest, the Rev. Fred Kammer, who is now the director of the Jesuit Social Research Institute at Loyola University, said the welfare-reform law would be “a national social catastrophe. No one will be spared the consequences.”
