Spiritual Care

Back to Areas of Care

Spiritual care is an important program that patients and their families can access for encouragement, healing, coping and support. You don't have to practice religion to benefit from our spiritual care program.

Our Spiritual Care volunteer team supports all types of spiritual expression: religious practice, personal relationships, artistic creation, a connection to nature, and more. You will be supported in a way that honours your values and beliefs. This service is available to patients, caregivers, and staff of all faiths and cultural backgrounds.  

Spiritual Care services:  

  • Prayers, blessings, and spiritual guidance. 
  • Discover the meaning of illness, challenges, and life transitions. 
  • Cope with grief and loss. 
  • The practice of meditation. 
  • Celebrate sacred rituals. Please provide advanced notice for ritual requests. 
  • Address concerns about ethical decision-making. 
  • Assist in accessing additional resources. 
  • Access to the Multi-Faith Centre, open 24/7 for prayer, meditation, and reflection. The Multi-Faith Centre is located on the lower level, near the bottom of the staircase and the Spiritual Care Office.
