Whether in a hospital, house of faith, or hospice, those in the field of Spiritual/Pastoral Care are often confronted with questions about organ, eye and tissue donation. If a family should ever approach you about donation, call LOPA (1-800-833-3666) or Southern Eye Bank (504-891-3937) as soon as possible.
Every year, eye banks and organ procurement agencies around the country observe National Donor Sabbath. During this event, faith leaders from many religions, donor families, transplant recipients, and donation and transplantation professionals participate in services and programs to educate the public about the need for the lifesaving and healing gifts passed to others through transplantation, while also encouraging people to register their decision to be an organ, eye and tissue donors. Please contact Joy Fragola at 337-781-8302 to learn how you can support our local National Donor Sabbath efforts today.
Southern Eye Bank provides in-services for seminarians and spiritual/pastoral care at hospitals.
