Spiritual Support

Caring for the Body, Mind and Soul

At Sentara, we know the care of the spirit cannot be separated from the care of the body. We honor your unique spirit, your physical and emotional needs and your values and beliefs. We are committed to respecting all of these things because we care.

Our Chaplains

Sentara chaplains encourage spiritual health through compassionate care every day.

Focusing on what matters most to you, our board-certified chaplains offer interfaith emotional and spiritual care for people of diverse religions and faith, and those who find meaning in other ways.

You can expect our chaplains to:

  • Support and advocate for your beliefs and values
  • Be with you and your family when faced with difficult decisions, pain, grief, or unexpected changes
  • Listen without judgment and offer compassion when you are worried or upset
  • Provide support by helping you access your faith and/or inner strength to explore hope, courage, and resiliency for the future
