 Description:

This NCPD webinar examines the range of realities faced by veterans of war. It supplies tools for ministry, pastoral care and for parishes to provide support to them and to their families during deployment and following their veteran’s return from war, whether recently or in the past. What veterans see during war bludgeons their innocence and can bring wounds to their body, mind and spirit. Stress and added responsibilities to the spouse and children during deployments and following the return of their veteran can be very positively affected by the experience of a supportive parish community life and the grace of the Sacraments. The same is true for the veterans, themselves.

Provides:

  • Examination of medical and mental health issues, including PTSD
  • Catholic Church teaching
  • Pastoral, family & imaginative means of parish support
  • Live Q & A
  • Real-time captioning
