Pastoral Care Volunteer

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center

  • 59 people are interested

At Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center, we realize that spiritual and emotional support of patients is a vital factor in more positive medical outcomes. The Pastoral Care Department is glad to participate in the healing process of our patients. We have chaplains and trained pastoral care volunteers who promote healing by addressing the spiritual, emotional, and religious needs of our patients.

Without our pastoral care volunteers we could not effectively achieve the mission of the Pastoral Care Department, which makes our services available to the nearly 600 patients we serve on a daily basis.

Good pastoral care volunteers need not be formally trained as pastoral visitors. We will train compassionate candidates who support the caring goals of our Pastoral Care team.

We are looking for volunteers for weekday mornings - times may be flexible to accommodate your schedule.

If you think Pastoral Care Volunteering is for you, call Reverend Thomas Craig at 973-322-5015. This could be the beginning of a wonderful and rewarding volunteering opportunity!
