Support & Guidance

Spiritual Care

Care of the human spirit is critical to health. It is the work of our entire staff. Chaplains, however, are specialists, trained in human understanding, pastoral counseling, religious and cultural traditions. They are available to all patients and loved ones to provide a listening presence, guidance in mindfulness and prayer, support through decision-making, and help finding purpose.

We have two full-time chaplains, Michele Guest Lowery, MDiv, who is board certified, and Joshua Goulet, MDiv, MA. A third chaplain, Karin Wetmore, MDiv, PhD, is available on a part-time basis.

What to Expect from a Chaplain 

Emotional support and gentle spiritual guidance when:

  • Feeling anxious, afraid or upset
  • Struggling with emotional, spiritual or religious questions or with the meaning of an illness
  • Wrestling with difficult treatment choices or ethical dilemmas
  • Observing spiritual practices or  religious rites
  • Inviting your faith community leader
  • Grieving
  • Dealing with difficult news
  • Preparing mindfully for surgery
