Spiritual Resources

When patients arrive at Mary Free Bed for rehabilitation, they may experience many different levels of anxiety. Changes have occurred in their lives which for some are temporary and for others permanent.  Healing occurs on various levels and affects all aspects of our being – body, mind and spirit.  The holistic approach here at Mary Free Bed is very important.  It is my hope to bring you resources that can help support your spiritual health while you are here.

You may find the following websites a helpful source of support during your hospitalization.  They focus on the idea of hope and perseverance in the midst of struggle.  The idea of hope comes through on many different venues.  They may prompt the desire for further discussion with the hospital chaplain.  The chaplain may be contacted by asking your nurse to get a message to him.  

I hope you enjoy the different options.

Thank You,
Daniel Kelly, MA  Chaplain MFB
