Caring for the Whole Person
Spiritual Services is a vital part of St. Francis Healthcare System. The Spiritual Services team includes Catholic chaplains (priests and sisters) and lay persons who believe that Spiritual Services is integral to healing and health. They provide pastoral care to all patients, while being respectful of their religious beliefs. Chaplains offer pastoral support to patients as they grieve the loss of life or health and celebrate with patients as they rejoice in the gift of life or restored health.
By focusing on the health of the whole person, Spiritual Services can enhance an individual’s well-being. The Spiritual Services ministry follows the example of Jesus as healer and teacher, reaching out to those of all religions and cultural values. Services include visits to inpatients, prayers, sacraments, education, pastoral care, and bereavement support to families following the death of a loved one.
