Spiritual Health Services
Spiritual Health Services are provided in many different ways at Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare. Spiritual Health Practitioners are available to offer respect, dignity and compassion to patients and families in both inpatient and outpatient programs. Spiritual Health Practitioners also provide religious celebrations upon request through prayer and rituals appropriate to the patient’s faith orientation. They can also facilitate a connection to faith groups within the community for anyone requiring a conversation with a Spiritual Advisor of their own faith. Spiritual Health Practitioners are available from Monday to Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The Spiritual Health Office is located in Room 1067 in the Dr. Y. Emara Centre for Healthy Aging and Mobility. For information on services provided, please call Spiritual Health Services at extension 74817, 73647 or 72239.
HDGH has a beautiful Chapel for quiet reflection, prayer, mass, and multi-faith rituals. The chapel is located on the second floor of the Emara Building, to the left when getting off the elevators. The Chapel is open 24 hours a day.
Visit the Chapel for weekly devotions:

To further support the spiritual needs of our patients and their families, HDGH has two multi-faith/quiet rooms on our campus at the following locations. These rooms are available for use 24 hours a day.
- Emara Building, 1st floor, to the right when first entering the building.
- Tayfour Building, 1st floor, directly across from the former Gift Shop.
Requesting a Sacrament of the Sick or Clergy Visit
HDGH supports the spiritual well-being of our patients by bringing on site a Roman Catholic Priest to offer our patients
the Sacrament of the Sick, or any other Sacrament they may need or request. Patients and families are also encouraged to contact their own Spiritual Leader as soon as they are admitted to HDGH – particularly patients admitted to our Palliative Care Unit.
