A workshop on "Pastoral Accompaniment" led by Bill Huebsch will be held in Our Lady of Lourdes Church Hall on Sunday, 22nd October 2017 from 2pm-4:30pm.
Bill Huebsch holds an undergrad degree in Philosophy and a Masters in Theological Studies from the Catholic Theological Union of Chicago and is on the adjunct faculty for Pastoral Studies at Loyola University. In his workshop, Bill will help us consider the principles and practices of accompaniment as presented by Pope Francis in his recent exhortations and the encyclical 'Laudato Si' sent to the whole church. The Pope has had a lot to say to the church and the world over the past few years, but there is no pastoral strategy he has emphasised rnore than pastoral accompaniment. We will find that as we learn to accompany others, we open the door for many who felt edged out of church life.
