Membership Discussion

We would like to have an open discussion to identify the needs, recommendations, and challenges among Parish Nurses/Faith Community Nurses.  Some of these topics may then be discussed in a separate blog for focus.  Your active participation is appreciated, as we can all learn from one another!

    I am looking for a curriculum or outline focused on orientation of lay parishioners who will start doing visitation ministry. Does anyone have a format or content, or method to deliver content?

    I found a guidebook that you can download. Are the lay parishioners also going to offer Communion?…..DOROT_F_V_Guidebook pdf
    This may give you some ideas that you could use for your situation.

      Thanks, Marie. This site is temporarily unavailable, but I will check back.

    Carol, I have developed guidelines and an orientation for my congregational care visitors. I go over the guidelines and orientation on
    a one:one basis and try to review it with them on an annual basis. Would that be helpful?

      That would be helpful, if you don’t mind sharing. You can email it to me at
