Pastoral Care

When facing health care challenges and needs many people turn to a belief in God or a higher power. We are here to support patients’ spiritual needs as they connect with those relationships and resources which provide them with spiritual strength. We are committed to being a place where all may experience the healing presence of God. Some reasons patients, families and staff contact a chaplain: 

  • When seeking inner strength
  • When experiencing a transition
  • When talking to another person might help
  • When seeking prayer or a prayer partner  
  • When wanting to share a faith experience 
  • When exploring ethical issues
  • When feeling anxious or upset
  • When frightened or lonely
  • When frustrated or confused
  • When grieving a loss
  • When wanting to reflect on your thankfulness
  • When exploring forgiveness
  • When seeking connections with a faith community
  • When desiring communion or another sacrament
