Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

A dedicated team that supports all who work and live here

Our pastoral care team calls on the healing presence of Jesus in reverencing the dignity, uniqueness, and beauty of each person encountered at Saint Joseph Villa. Team members support and promote the wellness of individuals in mind, body, and spirit. The team works to strengthen each person’s relationship with God by providing necessary services to nurture that relationship.

The pastoral care team of Sisters of Saint Joseph and representatives accompany our residents, families, and staff of all faith traditions and seek to meet their spiritual needs. This ministry works in tandem with the medical, physical, social, and psychological care provided to residents. Team members are constantly present with the families of residents, establishing relationships, sustaining communication, and offering care and support, especially at times of illness or death.
