  • Spiritual CareProviding comfort, support and encouragement.

    As a faith-based health care organization, spiritual care is a vital component to staying well or returning to wellness at St. Mary-Corwin. Many scientific studies have shown that prayer and meditation (within any faith) greatly aid in one's healing. At St. Mary-Corwin, we are dedicated to helping you, your family, and our own associates with their spiritual needs. We respect each person's belief system. Together we look at the meaning and values in our lives, the problems and questions we all face and the resources we can draw upon to aid healing.

    Why call a chaplain?

    Chaplains are health care professionals who bring all the resources of spiritual and pastoral care to help our patients, their families and friends better cope with the challenges of a hospital visit. Our chaplains are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide spiritual guidance through prayer, ritual, sacrament, or help our patients connect to their religious communities.

    The following services are offered with spiritual care:

    • Spiritual counsel is available 24 hours a day for individuals or groups. St. Mary-Corwin chaplains offer counsel on faith issues, meaning of life, guilt or worry, grief and prayer.
    • Bereavement support can help you deal with the difficulty of illness or the loss of a loved one. A myriad of emotions, including sadness, anger, guilt, anxiety and acceptance, can oftentimes be overwhelming. We are here to help you heal.
    • Educational programs are offered throughout the year for associates and the community. Our speakers address such topics as spirituality, bereavement, integrating spirituality into the workplace, stress and spirituality, advance directives, change and healing.
    • Advance Directives such as Medical Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare Decisions, Living Will or Colorado CPR Directive are important aspects of the health care process. Authorization to Consent to Treatment or Unemancipated Minor and Donor Directions for Anatomical Gift are other official documents you can download. St. Mary-Corwin cannot offer legal advice, however descriptions and links can be found on our Advance Directive page.
