CentraState to Celebrate Pastoral Care Week in October

By |2018-05-07T11:43:37-04:00September 30th, 2016|

The pastoral care team at CentraState Medical Center is celebrating Pastoral Care Week from Oct. 16 to Oct. 22 with a daily prayer service at 10 a.m. in CentraState Medical Center’s Chapel located on the first floor of the hospital. There also will be a showing of a chaplain documentary film on Oct. 20 at 7-8:30 p.m. in the Star and Barry Tobias Ambulatory Campus Auditorium, 901 W. Main Street, Freehold.

This year’s theme is “Spiritual Resilience” which acknowledges the role both chaplains and pastoral counselors have in supporting the spiritual resilience or growth of it in those they serve. Pastoral Care Week also provides a unique opportunity to address suffering related to loss and trauma and to seek opportunities for strengthening spiritual resilience amid them.

CentraState’s pastoral care team has several years of experience with people grieving over a loved one. The team draws insight from years of chaplaincy work in various hospitals, intensive care units, nursing homes and hospice.
