Commission for Pastoral Care

The Commission for Pastoral Care is primarily responsible for observing the pastoral care in parishes, the changing pastoral structures and the various pastoral services (e.g. police chaplaincy, chaplaincy in prisons and hospitals, telephone counselling, pastoral care in rural areas, corporate chaplaincy, etc.). Moreover, it explores new ways of evangelisation on the Internet, in tourism and in urban experiential spaces. The Commission is assisted by holders of Chairs of Pastoral Theology, by a variety of associations and societies and by religious communities. The Commission for Pastoral Care has an associated Sub-Commission for Women in the Church and Society.
