Patron of Association
“It is my privilege to be associated with faith community nursing as the patron of this unique and sacred mission. Faith community nurses are engaged in faith communities and beyond, offering education, advice, referral and liaison, management services as well as prayers with pastoral support.
This care comes from a sense of the divine love in all of life and a belief in the presence of healing graces which can flow through people in special ways.
This care can therefore address the whole person, body, mind and spirit. When this happens the potential for deeper care opens up, bringing all kinds of good and a real kind of hope, spiritually or otherwise. It is an honour to support and commend this mission."
