People forget what you kept, but they will never forget what you gave.
The chaplains at Sibley seek to be inclusive in the way they provide emotional-spiritual care to those in need of chaplaincy services. They embrace every opportunity to listen, sit, pray in silence or aloud and encourage the persons who have requested chaplaincy services.
The team includes a director, two part-time chaplains, an administrative assistant and volunteer clergy. Our volunteer clergy serve various faith groups within the hospital. They include Roman Catholic priests and Eucharistic ministers, Jehovah Witnesses ministers, a rabbi and clergy from various Protestant traditions.
Every effort is made to contact faith representatives of other groups upon patient or family request.
The team has specialized training that includes ongoing research to keep us viable in the field of spiritual care. As a part of a transformative hospital that seeks to invite the spiritual practitioner to the table, our team is honored to help connect scientific findings with spiritual discoveries in order to provide a more holistic form of health care.
The chaplaincy care team plans and leads worship and special services along with symposiums designed to educate the community. The group is present, caring, available and ready to journey with patients, staff, family and visitors to the hospital. Feel free to attend one of the programs or to call upon us for assistance. It is our pleasure to serve you.
