Mercy Health and Trinity Health are proud to recognize our chaplains during Spiritual Care Week Oct. 20-26, 2019 for providing spiritual support to those we serve, their loved ones and our colleagues affected by ongoing loss and grief.
The theme for this year’s Spiritual Care Week is Hospitality: Cultivating Space. There is a spiritual dimension to healing and hospitality requires space for healing to take place.
Trinity Health’s Mission Integration team is focusing on the healing environment, in part, by cultivating healing spaces to promote our mission of being a “transforming healing presence.”
Spiritual Care takes seriously the meaningful nature of healing spaces, both physically and metaphorically. There is value in cultivating spaces where one feels safe, where one’s dignity is protected and where opportunities for reflection enrich.
This week, Trinity Health would like to extend a special thank you to our chaplains as you foster a safe place for patients and their families. Read more about the important work of our chaplains at Mercy Health.
