Spiritual Care

Mackenzie Health is pleased to offer Spiritual Care Services to help patients and their families discover a sense of hope and peace by assisting them to reclaim the sacred in their lives either through the rites and rituals of their faith traditions or through those principles and life experiences that give meaning and purpose to them. Our Multi-faith Chaplain and our Rabbi are available to assist you during your stay at Mackenzie Health. They are able to contact the clergy and representatives of the various Faith communities in the Greater Toronto Area to come and visit with you.

Our Multi-faith Chaplain is available each week day from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm and our Rabbi is available Monday to Thursday from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm.  You may contact either of them by asking your nurse or your social worker to call or you may contact the Chaplain at ext. 7562 or the Rabbi at ext. 7871.

After hours your nurse canpage the on-call multi-faith chaplain, the On-call Rabbi or the On-call Catholic Priest who will come to confer the Sacrament of the Sick and/or the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession).
