The chaplains of GCS address the issues of later life, and we assist residents and their families in their continued life journey. Between the losses and changes of this stage of life, seniors may need to give up some of their independence or adjust to a new environment. The aim of GCS is to support the residents on their journey, and to help them meet any challenges with grace.
Our Director, Chaplains, and Chaplain Interns offer listening ears, a caring presence, prayers, scriptures, and sacraments if asked for by a resident or appropriate to a given situation. Each of our staff is sensitive to honoring wherever a resident or caregiver is “coming from”, regardless of faith tradition.
GCS works to provide and coordinate Catholic Masses, Protestant worship services, and Jewish Shabbat services, as well as other holiday and memorial services at the facilities we serve.
We also coordinate Bible studies, provide worship materials for services, and maintain a small resource library for our chaplains and interns. Your gifts help GCS to pay for the help provided by the Chaplains and Chaplain Interns (CPE students) who provide spiritual care to the residents.
