The 2015 Annual Conference, “Caregivers as Confessors and Healers” was held November 5 – 7, 2015 (see 2015 Conference tab for more information). We were blessed to hear a Patriarchal video message at the beginning of the Conference; please click the link below to listen to His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew speak to OCAMPR.
OCAMPR exists to foster interdisciplinary dialogue and promote Christian fellowship among healing professionals in medicine, psychology and religion. Members pursue an understanding of the whole person which integrates the basic assumptions of medicine, psychology and religion within the Orthodox Christian faith in educating and serving Church and community.
OCAMPR contributes to the spiritual sustenance and growth of helping and healing professionals who experience their Orthodox Christian faith as the center of their professional life and ministry. Inter-jurisdictional and endorsed by the Episcopal Assembly (formerly SCOBA), OCAMPR is for those who seek to better understand and experience the best relationship between theology and the healing arts and sciences, to better offer their services in the light of Christ’s truth and the Church’s healing wisdom.
Members share a love for Christ and the holistic view of personhood and sacredness inherent in Eastern Orthodoxy as it informs their professional lives and practices in medicine, nursing, mental health, psychology, ethics, theology, parish ministry, parish nursing, prison and community ministry, social services, and military, institutional and community chaplaincy.
