"Listen.....with the Ear of Your Heart"
From the Rule of St. Benedict
Spiritual Care is an integral component of our compassionate, caring services. Respecting the needs and desires of each resident, our fulltime, on-site chaplain is available to meet with both residents and families for emotional and spiritual support.
Some of the spiritual care services include listening and reflection, caregiver support, ethical clarity, end of life care, and grief support. Healing resources, such as music, prayer, and the sacraments, are available to residents and families. Studies have shown that some of the potential benefits of spiritual care include faster recovery, lower anxiety, improved effectiveness of medications, improved vital signs, and more confidence and participation in one’s own healing process.
Weekday Word and Communion services are as follows:
2nd Tuesday of each month at 10 a.m. on 2nd Floor
3rd Wednesday of each month at 10:30 a.m. on 3rd Floor
4th Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. on 4th Floor
Devotional and support groups are also held during the week.
This beautiful stained glass window featuring Christ as the Good Shepherd is a focal point in our chapel. The window is from the meditation chapel in the original Abbott Hospital in Minneapolis. This historic building, located on 1st Avenue an 18th Street, was the first home of Benedictine Health Center of Minneapolis.
It is through the lens of the past that we gain perspective of the future. In this timeless image of Christ gathering and protecting his flock, we are inspired toward our mission to serve.
