We are pleased to be of service to those of all faiths. We can send a chaplain
or suggest prayers and rituals. If we cannot meet your needs, we will
make an effort to contact your faith leader or find someone who shares
your faith traditions.
We are here to coordinate the spiritual needs of our patients and their
families. In the tradition of the Catholic Church, we value human life
and promote the health of the whole person. We believe spiritual care
is an integral part of the healing process and that God's healing
love is made present through us.
Prayer and faith can help you cope with pain, find comfort in times of
trouble and come to terms with your illness.
If you are worried about surgery, dealing with a long-term illness, having
a hard time communicating with your family or just want someone to listen,
the Providence Saint John Spiritual Care team can help.

Thank you God for another day of life. Please take the uncertainty of today
and hold it in the certainty of your care. For pleasures, I thank you;
in my suffering, I thank you that I am not alone. May hope be ever in
my heart, and your name be ever on my lips. Amen.
Oh God, my shelter and my resting place, surround me as I close my eyes
to sleep. Even in the dark of the night, may your love light my soul.
In the morning, when I awake refreshed and renewed, may I feel your healing
power. I close my eyes in confident sleep. Amen.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom some;
they will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily
bread. And forgive us other trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass
against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.
In green pastures, you let me graze;
To safe water, you lead me; you restore my strength.
You guide me along the right path for the sake of your name.
Even when I walk through a dark valley,
I fear no harm for you are at my side;
your rod and staff give me courage.
You set a table before me as my enemies watch.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Only goodness and love will pursue me all the days of my life;
I will dwell in the house of the Lord for years to come.
