Many of our patients and families do not belong to a religious community. But we find that when faced with a life-limiting illness, people who previously haven't had the opportunity to think seriously about their beliefs may find themselves wanting to discuss them with someone who knows how to listen.
Our Multi-Faith Team consists of our Spiritual Care team and our Multi-Faith Chaplaincy team. Our Multi-Faith Team leader is supported by volunteers who are on hand to talk with you about your what is important to you, your faith, beliefs or explore any goals you may have. They work closely alongside our clinical teams and see their care as integral to the support St Peter's offers to patients, carers and their families.
Our Spiritual Care team is dedicated to offering a respectful, inclusive service that supports people of all faiths, or of no faith, whether they are a patient or a carer. Their hope is that people from all traditions will feel at home in their care. The team is ready to support you, whether you need someone to talk to, have an ongoing faith need, are questioning your faith, need help arranging sacraments or simply need someone to sit with you. If you would like a visit from your own faith community, our team can arrange this for you.
