More About The Church Publishing Imprint
Church Publishing is quite literally our foundational imprint. Launched as the Church Hymnal Corporation, the original church publishing house was dedicated to publishing a single work, The Hymnal 1918, which remains in print to this day.
In the nearly 100 years since its first publication, Church Publishing has emerged as a principal provider of liturgical and musical resources for The Episcopal Church, along with works on church leadership, pastoral care and Christian formation. With its growing portfolio of professional books and resources, Church Publishing was recognized in 1997 as the official publisher for the General Convention of the Episcopal Church in the United States. Simultaneously through the years, Church Publishing has consciously broadened its program, reach, and service to the church by publishing books for and about the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ministry with the Sick?
Great resource for chaplains Sep 3, 2009
During a clinical internship as a hospital chaplain, I found this to be a very useful tool - especially for when I was on-call and dealing with a lot of death. It offer prayers and liturgy for various types of situations. Even though I typically pray extemporaneously, I found that at the time of death these kinds of prayers can be comforting to families.
A wonderful tool for hospital chaplaincy Sep 18, 2008
Ministry with the Sick contains prayers and services from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer and Enriching Our Worship 2. It is pocket-sized and has just about anything you could need while making pastoral visits, either in a hospital, home, or healthcare facility. Highly recommended.
