Chaplain needed at Sunnyside Hospice
Sunnyside Hospice and Palliative Care is seeking a chaplain
to fill a vacancy created about two weeks ago when its chaplain resigned.
"We're certainly recruiting for a part time
chaplain," said Joel Stephens, executive director.
"It's a service that's a very good thing, but is also
required under the state and federal rules for Hospice."
Stephens said his office has been advertising locally and
has received "several really good candidates", and expects to make a
decision within the next two weeks.
"It's not a decision we want to sit on for too
long," said Stephens. "A chaplain is a really vital role in Hospice,
offering spiritual comfort and keeping contact with the Ministerial Association
in informal networking. Sometimes, a chaplain's job is as simple as keeping the
patients connected to their own faith community."
