Spiritual Care

The services of Holy Family Memorial’s Pastoral Care staff are available to all those receiving care within HFM’s health network. Providing spiritual care and emotional support in times of illness, suffering and crisis, the Pastoral Care staff helps people participate more fully in the healing love of Jesus. They minister with compassionate concern, respectful of the dignity of each person and aware of the value of total healthcare.

The Pastoral Care staff consists of both men and women who are trained and certified as chaplains. They work together with community clergy, physicians, nurses and all healthcare employees to meet the needs of patients and their families.

A member of Holy Family Memorial’s Pastoral Care staff is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Please call the Pastoral Care office at 920-320-2347 or 920-320-2317 during regular business hours (M-F); on weekends or after hours, please call the main switchboard and ask for the on-call chaplain.
