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.
