LEWISTON — Five pastoral students recently completed a unit of clinical pastoral education at Central Maine Medical Center.

The students include Andrew Flatt of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, a student at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, California; Amelia Nugent of Freeport, Harvard Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts; Israel Buffardi of Portland, Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago, Illinois; Holly Tornrose of Bethel, Yale Divinity School in New Haven, Connecticut; and Alex Boucher of Biddeford, St. John’s Seminary in Brighton, Massachusetts.

Students in this graduate-level education program explore gifts for ministry, deepen self-awareness and understanding, develop skills in visitation, enhance leadership skills, and meet various denominational and seminary requirements.

Students learn through the action/reflection method of learning to further integrate personal history, beliefs and the behavioral sciences during their 400 hours of supervised ministry.

The program includes visitation, individual and group reflection, didactics, written materials and pertinent readings.
