Community of Hope trains volunteers to provide a listening presence and prayer to those in need. There is a six-session training course that incorporates Benedictine spiritual principles of daily prayer and a centered life, as well as practice pastoral visits. Those who have completed the course do hospital and nursing home visits several times a month, as well as other assignments as needed. Monthly meetings provide support and spiritual grounding.
