WHAT IS PASTORAL CARE…

AND WHAT IS INVOLVED IN CHAPLAINCY SERVICES?

THE CATHOLIC PERSPECTIVE

Continuing the mission of Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, the Church in the Archdiocese of St. John’s strives to centre its love and concern on those who need it most. From this perspective, PASTORAL CARE involves:

  • Promotion of healthy behaviours and practices
  • Prevention of unhealthy behaviours or practices
  • Care and counselling  for people in crisis
  • Advocacy for those who are voiceless or who may not be heard

Pastoral Care is especially, but not exclusively, addressed to

  • THE ELDERLY
  • THE YOUNG
  • THE IMPRISONED
  • THOSE WHO SUFFER IN MIND, BODY OR SPIRIT, whatever their age,
  • AND their families,friends and care-givers

Therefore, the Archdiocese of St. John’s provides Pastoral Care to people in the following facilities:

  • Health Sciences Centre
  • Janeway Children’s Hospital
  • The Waterford Hospital
  • St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital
  • St. Patrick’s Mercy Home
  • St. John's Long-Term Care Facility
  • The Leonard A. Miller Centre
  • Chancellor Park
  • Agnes Pratt Home
  • St. Luke's Home
  • Glenbrook Lodge

Outside the city of St. John’s, through its parishes, the Archdiocese provides Pastoral Care for:

  • Placentia Hospital
  • Lion’s Manor, Placentia
  • Burin  Peninsula Health Care Complex
  • The Grand Bank Health Care Centre
  • US Memorial Hospital, St. Lawrence
  • Blue Crest Nursing Home, Grand Bank
  • And various long-term care facilities throughout the rural areas of the Archdiocese
