Catholic Health Services
Pastoral and spiritual care services are integral to the healthcare and services of the Catholic Health Services organization. Pastoral and spiritual care offers healing, sustaining, guiding, reconciling and counseling services. Pastoral care ministry is provided to patients/residents, their families/community, and staff. Pastoral Care is provided to patients, their families, and staff; giving spiritual support with respect for each person’s faith, tradition, and spiritual perspective and functioning in an interdisciplinary manner with other healthcare colleagues.
Because the human person is by nature spiritual, pastoral care seeks to honor and facilitate the search for meaning and integrity in the experiences of life including sickness, death, and bereavement, by offering presence, compassion, listening, support and education.
