In the multi- cultural society we live in, spirituality is more than religion; it differs from person to person and is expressed in many different ways. It may be that someone wants to talk and reflect about the meaning of life, which can be provided by a varied range of Hospice staff and volunteers.
At St Catherine’s Hospice we embrace the spiritual differences of all the people we come into contact in the varied services we provide. They are personalised depending on the needs of individuals and coordinated by our Family Support Team. This may be in the form of anything from having an informal conversation about how people are feeling, to assisting with memory boxes, or arranging your local faith leader to visit.
Our multi-faith chapel is available to everyone as a place for prayer or simply as a quiet space for contemplation and reflection regardless of secular or spiritual belief. It hosts weekly services for those who wish to attend so please ask a member of staff if you are interested.
Likewise we have volunteer chaplains who visit the Hospice weekly who support both inpatients and day therapy. They are happy to talk with you if requested even if you don’t have a religious faith, or we can arrange for your local faith leader to visit you whilst in the Hospice.
