Hospice needs clergy members

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Hospice of the Panhandle needs volunteer clergy to provide spiritual support to people who are living with a limited life expectancy, yet who still want to live life to its fullest. These people come from various spiritual backgrounds and belief systems, so pastors from different denominations are needed.

Help is needed in Berkeley, Hampshire, Jefferson and Morgan counties.

The time commitment is nominal, especially if many pastors apply. Retired ministers especially might be suited to this task.

Some orientation is required in the form of a two- to three-hour luncheon training class.

For information, call volunteer coordinator Pam Shanklin at Hospice of the Panhandle at 1-304-264-0406 by Friday, Feb. 6.
