Pediatric Spiritual Care

Chaplains visit people from all faith traditions and respect their spirituality. Chaplains offer pastoral care for spiritual and emotional support, conduct special religious rituals such as baptism and prayer services, provide helpful literature, education about faith, issues and religious traditions, and offer pastoral support at the end of life.
