Spiritual Care is an essential dimension to providing holistic care at CHI St. Joseph Health. As a Catholic Healthcare System, we value the diversity of ways in which faith is expressed and we’re committed to seeing that the faith, beliefs and values of our patients and families are honored.
Our goal is to be aware of each patient’s spirituality and how it influences their healthcare decisions. By doing so, we can bring additional comfort and an increased sense of well-being to every aspect of care.
Our Spiritual Care volunteers visit our patients and their families to offer emotional and spiritual support to ease the stress of being in the hospital.
Scheduling is flexible, depending on your needs. All volunteers will be trained before they go out on the units on their own.
If you feel called to any of these special ministries, please contact Chaplain Mary Clare Carden, Director of Spiritual Care, to schedule an interview. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 979.776.4994. Approval by the Spiritual Care Department for these assignments is required before you can begin your volunteer orientation process.
