Hospital Chaplaincy & Pastoral Care
Catholic Pastoral Care in the Diocese of Broken Bay is the ministry of presence, “being for others”, to patients, families and staff. That includes:
- Building relationships
- Listening to life stories without judgement
- Articulating empathy and respect
- Nourishing, sustaining and guiding especially in times of grief and trauma.
- Enlivening the spirit
- Providing ritual, prayer and sacraments when requested.
New energy surges into a person’s life when they have a sense that someone is truly listening to them ...
CatholicCare Diocese of Broken Bay provides designated priests and lay pastoral care practitioners to seven hospitals within the Diocese. In an average year, our CatholicCare Pastoral Care Practitioners make around 6000 visits, which include some 3500 individuals, most of whom are patients, many family members, friends of patients and some hospital staff as well.
