Spiritual Care Week: meet our local Chaplains

October 21-26 marks Spiritual Care Week– a week that provides an opportunity for chaplains and pastoral care counsellors to share their story and to recognise the importance of spiritual care.

This year’s theme for Spiritual Care Week is ‘Hospitality: Cultivating Space’.

We sat down with five local chaplains from our Chaplaincy Peer Network to learn more about their unique roles in our community and what the theme, ‘Hospitality: Cultivating Space’ means in their day to day work.

“Providing hospitality is about recognising the other person as valuable for who they are.”
– Chris Jackson, Chaplain, Frank Baxter Juvenile Justice Centre
