We are delighted to introduce and welcome our Chaplain at Kilbryde Hospice, Catherine Crosbie. You can find below Catherine’s calendar for March so please feel free to come along. Here Catherine tells us a bit more about her role at the hospice:
“Hi my name is Catherine Crosbie, I am the Chaplain at the Kilbryde Hospice, and my role is giving spiritual support to staff, volunteers, patients, carers, and visitors to the hospice.
I trained at Glasgow University and gained my BD there graduating in 1996, I also as part of that training worked for 18 months at the Glasgow Southern General multi faith Chaplaincy.
I have worked with many ministers in the Church of Scotland, the Congregational Church and the United Reform Church over the years, although never had my own church, I was not ordained but have provided pulpit supply to various churches for many years now.
I can have one to one chats with people by appointment via, staff or volunteers. I can also meet with you in drop in for informal chats.
I am happy to meet with all faiths and none, and have been meeting with various faith leaders over the past few months, to ensure they know what we offer at Kilbryde, and how we can then in turn take care of anyone from their faith community with dignity and respect should they come in our doors.
I am in the hospice normally one day a week on a rolling basis, if I am in I display a sign on reception stating ‘Chaplain available today’.
There are little request cards that can be filled in to request some time with me, or you can just ask one of the staff or volunteers, to come get me if I am free.”
