The Attleboro Area Interfaith Collaborative through the Chaplaincy Program brings people together to worship, reflect and learn. The Interfaith Chaplain is also on-site for spiritual care at Sturdy Memorial Hospital:
- A member of the hospital team providing culturally, psycho-socially and spiritual/religiously competent patient and family-centered care.
- A sensitive listener who attends to the human and spiritual needs of patients and staff.
- Assists with family counseling and crisis intervention as requested.
- Connects with local religious leader when asked by a patient.
Patients are asked on admission to Sturdy Memorial Hospital to give permission for a chaplain or for their religious leader to visit them. In order that as many patients as possible are referred for pastoral care, it is important that patients respond affirmatively to these questions.
The Interfaith Chaplain is supported by gifts to the Attleboro Area Interfaith Collaborative. Sustaining this program is important for the overall well being of patients and their caregivers in our community. Individuals, houses of worship, community organizations, and businesses are invited to provide financial support for this ministry. Please note the donation as “Chaplaincy” and mail with check payable to Attleboro Area Interfaith Collaborative, 95 Pine Street, Attleboro, MA 02703. Thank you!
