International Trainings – Spiritual into Palliative Care

Region:

U.S.A

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Richard Bauer, M.M.

Fr. Rick Bauer plans to participate in the UNAIDS/PEPFAR Faith and Community Initiative to improve the quality of life of people living with HIV, especially spiritual and psychosocial support. The Inter-professional Spiritual Care Education Curriculum (ISPEC) strives to enroll pairs of clinicians (e.g. physicians, nurses, social workers, counselors, and other professions) and chaplains or spiritual care providers, and will prepare them to attend to patients’ spiritual needs and resources as an integral part of their practice. The objectives of this project are to offer two (2) two-day, trainings for a total of 100 participants (50 persons in each training) using ISPEC—one in Africa and one in Latin America, utilize trainers from previous in-person and virtual trainings in collaboration with Fr. Rick and Dr. Christina Puchalski, MD and three other U.S. based faculty members with extensive experience in ISPEC facilitation, and link the participants of this training with ongoing mentors and mentorship for a period of twelve months following the initial training, including on-line continuing education. Participants will work within their clinical setting and national palliative care associations for continued dissemination and trainings following this regional training.

For the majority of individuals throughout the world who currently face life-limiting illnesses, access to culturally appropriate, holistic palliative care (including assessment and treatment of physical, emotional, social and spiritual pain) is still emerging. This projects’ curriculum focuses on a train-the-trainer program to build leaders, consultants, advocates, and knowledgeable clinicians who can educate, empower, and guide other healthcare professionals at their health institution for the integration of spiritual care in healthcare service provision.

“I invite you to reflect with me on “healing” as a process that restores an individual to personal and communal wholeness – physically, spiritually and emotionally. Often, the person effecting the healing is also transformed.”

– Fr. Robert Jalbert, M.M., Today’s Good News

Missionary Services is the program through which we continue to offer “missionary formation” to the Churches of Latin America and beyond. Led by Fr. Alejandro Marina, M.M., this training is carried out through online workshops, administration of the “Ex-CMMAL” building so that various organizations committed to the mission, have their headquarters to offer their formative proposals which include counseling and spiritual accompaniment, and the Laudato Si Program: Care of creation and formation in an ecological spirituality.

Fr. Charles R. Dittmeier, Maryknoll Priest Associate

Educating the deaf in Cambodia continues to make a difference to more than 51,000 deaf people and 500,000 who are hard-of-hearing.

Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers strive to provide more and better services to the deaf population by collaborating and partnering with other organizations to extend our reach. One of these partners is Epic Arts, a UK-based organization that promotes performing arts and skills training for people with or without disabilities.

You can help provide hostels to house and feed students and provide education, job training, interpreting, sign language, deaf community development and social services.

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Joseph V. McCabe, M.M.

The Four Maryknoll Schools have made some major changes; the biggest change was for the Maryknoll Society to become more involved in the evangelization and Christian formation of our students. Early in 2014, we implemented Independent Management Committees for each of our schools. A Youth Minister to oversee programs at all four schools was hired and pastoral workers were hired for three schools in 2015 to help the principals and youth minister meet the needs of our students.

Maryknoll continues to offer extracurricular religious programs that take place after school and at lunch time for students who want to pray or learn more about the Catholic faith. The pastoral workers enhance the Catholic aspects of the schools and insure that the quality of the classes is high and that the doctrine is explained in a coherent and professional level.

Missioner Responsible:

Fr. Paul M. Sykora, M.M.

In three learning centers, serving 170 children with teachers and volunteers, Fr. Paul Sykora offers tutoring to children in a poor area of Cochabamba, Bolivia where immigration from rural areas is high and families from other cultures must adapt.  The children now live in a world that their parents do not understand.

Learning Spanish language skills is the first step in advancing in school and adjusting to their new environment.

Your gift provides an education to the youth in Bolivia.
