The Rev. Canon Robert Two Bulls, Oglala Lakota, Vicar, All Saints Indian Mission, Minneapolis and Missioner, The Department of Indian Work & Multicultural Ministries for the Episcopal Church in Minnesota.

As future priests and pastors much of your work will be on the spiritual and emotional needs of faith communities within a Native American and First Nations context.  In this course we will explore how pastoral care can function within these communities.  Topics to be discussed will include but not limited to: death and dying, grief, home and hospital visits, substance abuse and historical trauma. 

This course meets the requirements for the M.Div. degree program, but is open to everyone.
