The InterFaith Works’ Spiritual Care Program provides chaplaincy services to as many as 2,000 persons each month in hospitals, nursing homes and correctional facilities throughout Onondaga County. Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Interfaith chaplains offer worship services, study groups, spiritual counseling and prayer for those in need of solace and spiritual support.

The Spiritual Care Program’s Spiritual Care Day is an annual educational event held every October in conjunction with Crouse Hospital. Participants, including clergy, chaplains, medical professionals, social workers and volunteer caregivers, enjoy a breakfast together before listening to an address on a timely subject designed to support their caregiving work in the community. Follow this link to the Spiritual Care Day event page.

The “CNY Inspirations” interfaith column in The Post-Standard and on is coordinated by the InterFaith Works’ Director of Spiritual Care. Inspiring articles, written by area leaders who represent a wide variety of faith traditions, educate readers about the diversity of faiths and inspire them to learn more.

The Spiritual Care Program also administers the Clergy Parking Card initiative. For a small yearly fee, ordained clergy and lay leaders can park at area hospitals free of charge while visiting congregants who are hospitalized.
