Pastoral care

Mind, body and soul

The St Monica Trust has always sought to address the spiritual and religious aspects of our residents’ needs. As you adjust to changing circumstances, you’ll have the opportunity to share your thoughts and feelings with our pastoral care team, so you can live life to the full. 

Community and worship

Each of our sites has a dedicated pastoral care coordinator for people of all faiths, regardless of ethnic origin or religious affiliation. They arrange regular opportunities for worship and occasions to enrich and nurture spiritual well-being. The pastoral care team also contribute towards developing our communities as places where people feel they belong, have a positive contribution to make and can express themselves.

Comfort and support

When times are challenging or if you’d just like to talk, we are here to provide support and listen. If you’d like to discuss your final wishes, we’ll be there to help ensure your life is celebrated in the way you’d like.

Celebrating life

Our pastoral care team are here for you and your family as well as all our volunteers and colleagues. They can arrange special services and festivals, opportunities to share life stories and celebrate special occasions from baptisms to blessings. The pastoral care team also organise annual events to give thanks for everyone who has been part of our communities, both past and present.
