When to Call the Campus Pastor
Presbyterian Homes & Services (PHS) is committed to your spiritual support. Campus Pastors consider it a privilege to minister to you no matter what life brings your way. Their ministry is most effective when they know what you need and they will always maintain confidentiality and respect your privacy. Please let your Campus Pastor know when:
You're going into the hospital.
Notify the Campus Pastor when you or your loved one is hospitalized. If you wish, the Campus Pastor can contact your local congregation and/or the hospital spiritual care staff on your behalf. The Campus Pastor can also follow up with you when you return and offer spiritual support as you recover.
You are ill for a prolonged period of time.
You may feel isolated when your health keeps you from attending chapel services or other community activities. The Campus Pastor can visit to see how you are doing, pray with you, and, if you wish, arrange for you to receive communion or other sacraments.
You’re facing a crisis.
Life happens and it’s not always easy. The Campus Pastor can extend spiritual comfort and support through compassionate presence, prayer, and confidential counsel.
You or your loved one is facing the end of life.
The Campus Pastor can attend to your loved one and family as you cope with death and dying. A Bedside Memorial and/or Procession of Honor
are available as is coordination of funeral/memorial services.
You seek prayer support.
The Campus Pastor is always willing to pray with or for you or someone you care about. Campus Pastors are committed to uphold confidentiality and will not carry your prayer forward to others without your permission.
You have spiritual or moral questions.
The Campus Pastor is a source of acceptance and spiritual direction if you have questions about the Bible and its teaching, or when you are wrestling with your faith.
Keep in mind; this is not an exhaustive list. You can call the Campus Pastor for other times and situations. Knowing your spiritual needs allows our Campus Pastors to offer their best.
