Being love, mercy and justice in parish ministry

Often it is an opportunity for the individual to recognize God in the midst of embracing their own light and darkness.



A caregiver’s prayer

God of Love, as a caregiver, I need the grace to be loving even when I do not love all that I am asked to do. It is extremely difficult to watch the one I love slowly lose their ability to care for self and to witness their pain of illness. More is demanded of my time and sometimes there just doesn’t seem to be enough of that in the day to tend to all that needs to be done



Aging Prayer

Oh, God, awaken within me the gift of these years.
Teach me to trust so I can face my fears.


Sister Carole Kimes has been a Sister of Providence for more than 35 years. Her experience as a hospice nurse and as caregiver for her parents as they aged support her current ministry with those in various stages of transition.
