Pastoral and spiritual care services
Our mission is to provide spiritual and emotional care and support to children, families, and staff that cultivates healing and wholeness and honors the dignity of each person.
Chaplains are here to listen, accompany, and bear witness to the joys, sorrows, and hopes of children and families. We are available for prayer, blessings, rituals, and for spiritual, emotional, and religious needs.
In Temple, our Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's Medical Center chaplains are available for emotional and spiritual support. They are committed to providing our patients, families, and staff with the best care. We honor every person's journey and spiritual path and do not promote specific beliefs. This care is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We are part of the medical team, participating in patient care, crisis intervention, and family support. We are committed to holistic care for the body, mind, and spirit.
Chaplains assist patients and their families in emergent situations 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays. Non-emergent care is typically provided during regular business hours, although a chaplain is on-call and available after hours.
