Common Worship: Pastoral Ministry Companion
One of the most common tasks undertaken by all clergy is ministry to the sick and to the bereaved. Containing the essentials for pastoral ministry in the community, Common Worship: A Pastoral Ministry Companion brings together services, prayers and readings for the most frequently encountered pastoral occasions in a portable, easy-reference volume.
It includes liturgies, prayers and readings for:
- Emergency baptism
- Prayers for the sick and their families
- Holy Communion at home or in hospital
- Reconciliation services (not present in previous Pastoral Services or Ministry to the Sick volumes)
- Prayers with the dying and at the time of a death
- Prayers for use at home before and after a funeral
- Passages of Scripture and Psalms in both modern and Prayer Book versions
This elegant and discreet volume - bound in soft-touch imitation leather with two ribbons - is the ideal size for keeping to hand in your pocket, bag or car glove compartment.
