The Pastoral Outreach series

Life does not always go to plan and our faith in God does not protect us from hardships
and sorrows. The Pastoral Outreach series tackles many of these trials that we might
face. Each book is a practical and thoughtful companion for those experiencing challenges and great for those trying to support them, whether priests, pastoral workers, friends or family.
