This is the third annual Interfaith Service of Remembrance; as always, it was very well attended by families, Veterans, and VA Staff.
The Providence VA Medical Center’s Chaplain Service is the total program of spiritual and pastoral care including assessment and care administered by clinical chaplains. A clinical chaplain has had extensive education and supervision to identify patients’ religious and spiritual needs and desires, address spiritual injuries, and enhance patients’ spiritual health, utilizing a full spectrum of interventions.
Spiritual and pastoral care are also integrated into the total program of health care provided to Veterans and made available to all patients and, in limited circumstances, to their immediate family members (caregivers) who desire such care.
Where needs may go beyond the many resources of Chaplain Service, chaplains are able to call upon community partners to appropriately meet our Veterans’ beliefs and practices.
For more information about the Chaplain Service, please click here or call Chaplain Dan Cottrell, Chief Chaplain, at (401) 273-7100, ext. 2865; or Father John Wydeven, Roman Catholic Chaplain, at (401) 273-7100, ext. 3098.
