Catholic Diocese of Calgary

Health Care Apostolate

Our office was established in 1983 primarily to offer the faithful of the diocese the opportunity to prepare and train for the ministry of Pastoral Care. Over the years the department has grown to include ongoing training and education in a variety of areas such as Palliative Care, Bereavement Care, Compassion Fatigue & Burnout, Mental Health, Alzheimer’s and more. The call to ministry in Pastoral Care is rooted in our Baptismal call to service. Jesus, at the Last Supper modeled for us how we are to wash each other’s feet by embracing a servant attitude for all.

Thank you
