Spiritual Care

"Fear not for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God..." (Isaiah 41:10)

How We Serve You

The Spiritual Care staff is an integral part of the patient care team at St. Luke's. Our chaplains are available to help in a variety of ways.

  • We offer spiritual care and counseling for patients, family, and staff; help patients contact their own clergy or church; listen to and counsel as patients share problems, concerns, fears, and questions; provide the comfort of the Sacraments (baptism, Holy Communion, anointing); and assist in making difficult decisions. We pray with and for our patients, and help serve as a reminder of God's love and caring presence.
  • St. Luke's Chapels are open to everyone for private prayer and corporate worship provided by our staff. Devotional materials are available in the chapel and can be brought to patient rooms upon request.
  • The chapels are open 24 hours a day. Requests may be made for sacred scriptures (Bibles, devotional materials, etc.) through the Spiritual Care Department.
