Pastoral Care

We serve all faiths and only seek to provide comfort in a time of need.

All services are free and strictly confidential.

 

The Hospitaller Order of St. John of God believes that part of the healing process encompasses mind, body and spirit. At St. John of God Community Services, we strive to create an atmosphere of Hospitality. Our mission, as Brothers, co-workers, volunteers and friends, is to serve in the spirit of our founder, St. John of God, who gathered those in need and treated them with dignity and compassion.

Pastoral Care Services

FOOD PANTRY

Several times a year, we participate in a food drive, both internally and externally. Local Parishes and organizations donate food and resources that assist us in helping those in need. Our co-workers and volunteers help identify families and students that need food and clothing, especially during the holiday time. Our food pantry is open all year long and its goal is to assist those underserved in the St. John of God Community Services family with food insecurity.

 

HOME AND HOSPITAL VISITATION

We visit, upon request, all those who are recovering at home or in the hospital. We strive to provide a listening ear, an encouraging word and a presence of understanding. Visitation is open to all co-workers, students, adults, families and friends.

 

FAMILY SUPPORT

In any situation that arises within our families we serve and our co-workers, we participate in providing those supports that will alleviate an situation.

 

EMERGENCY FUND

The emergency fund, which has been created at the request of co-workers, serves to assist our co-workers, families, students, and those we serve, financially and/or with other resources that can alleviate an immediate urgent need.

 

FUNERAL PREPARATION AND SERVICES

Upon the death of a student, client, co-worker's family or co-worker, we give support in planning and/or conducting services of all faiths.

 

COMMPASIONATE PRESENCE

We always strive to be a compassionate presence to all those who enter our campus. It is the example of our founder, Saint John of God, that teaches us and empowers us to "Do Good."
