Answer the call to help others heal their body, mind and spirit
Strengthening the spirit is an important part of healing
Spiritual care services help patients find hope and comfort in their faith traditions
Healing from an illness or injury is a journey. A person's mental resolve and the comfort and inspiration of one's faith is as important to the healing process as treating physical symptoms of the body.
Caring for the whole person—body, mind and spirit—is what sets Mercy Health Lourdes apart from the rest. With vital funding from donations, our chaplains and pastoral care team can counsel, support and pray with patients and their loved ones through difficult times.
Spiritual care is one of the most visible expressions of the mission of Mercy Health Lourdes: to extend the compassionate ministry of Jesus. Your faithful giving for spiritual care services means you, too, are an important part of our mission to improve the health and well-being of our community and bring good help to those in need, especially the poor, dying and underserved.
Comfort for the Soul and the Body
In the halls at Lourdes it's common to see a doctor, nurse or chaplain praying with a patient or loved one. Or to hear music coming from the chapel filled with people for Mass. Embracing faith and prayer as part of the healing journey is what makes Mercy Health Lourdes special. And every gift made to the Foundation for spiritual care services is special too, bringing hope and comfort to people during a health crisis.
