The year 2020 has taken a toll of many people of faith - some are experiencing many layers of frustration, isolation, and even grief. For those impacted by death or hospitalization, related to the pandemic or not, this season can feel particularly overwhelming. How do you provide pastoral care to those who are hurting the most as they try to make sense out of their experience? Parkview Chaplaincy Director Patrick Riecke talks loss, grief, pastoral care and COVID, and responds to your specific questions about how to provide care during this unusual time.
