Archdiocese of Philadelphia Launches New Ministry to Support Adults with Chronic Pain and Illness

The Office for Life and Family has partnered with the Office for Persons with Disabilities to launch the Peace in the Storm Project. This initiative provides parishes throughout the five-county Archdiocese of Philadelphia with a model of spiritual and pastoral accompaniment to assist adults coping with chronic pain and illness.

Based on scripture, fellowship, the beauty of Church tradition, and the strengthening grace of the Sacraments, The Peace in the Storm Project is encouraging and theologically sound. It is also designed for ease of implementation in any size parish or health care organization and is appropriate for adults with any of a wide range of chronic pain and illnesses including cancer, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, and heart disease.

The program will launch with a webinar hosted by Maureen Pratt, MTS, MFA, author, speaker, and Founder and Executive Director of the Peace in the Storm Project.
