Spiritual care and support | St Joseph's Hospice

Spiritual care and support

Spiritual care is about care for the human spirit or soul and supporting people in their religious beliefs. Pastoral care is about giving general care. 

We have a multi-faith Chaplaincy Team offering pastoral and spiritual support to our patients, as well as to their families, carers and staff. 

Our Chaplains represent the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Muslim & Jewish traditions and provide  support to those of a particular faith or none.

We can also arrange for the representative of another faith to come into the Hospice, if requested by a patient or family. Please let us know if you would like us to arrange this. 

There are daily services held in our beautiful chapel and all are welcome to make use of our quiet prayer room. Our sacred spaces are always open and are ideal for quiet prayer or reflective time.

How to access these services

If you would like to talk to one of the Hospice Chaplains, please tell a member of staff.
You can email the Chaplaincy Department at g.obrien@stjh.org.uk or contact the Team Lead via the main reception on 020 8525 6000.
