Spiritual Care: As Important to Healing as Physical Care

If you are facing an illness, pain or other losses, your spirit needs strengthening as well as your body. Feelings of fear, discouragement and grief are real and can drain you of the energy you need to heal. At Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare, our Chaplains are available to join you on the way toward healing and wholeness for the body, mind and spirit. You are unique and sacred with needs as individual as you are. We bring our healing ministry to people of all faiths, spiritual traditions and ethnic backgrounds.

Here are some ways we can help you and your family:

  • Be a supportive, caring presence
  • Listen and offer encouragement
  • Pray with you and family members
  • Lead you in meditation and guided imagery
  • Help you work through difficult decisions
  • Honor your ethnic and cultural needs
  • Support your religious belief and spiritual practices
  • Explore sources of meaning and hope in the middle of a health crisis
  • Provide grief counseling and support
  • Work with you on your Advanced Directive
  • Bring you the Sacraments of Holy Communion, Anointing of the Sick and Reconciliation

Places for Prayer & Meditation

Our Chapels provide a quiet space for prayer and meditation. Bibles and holy books of all faiths are available. In addition, all patient rooms have a television channel devoted to reflection and meditation.
