Spiritual Care Program

The “Spiritual Care Program” is led by Reverend Gregory Jones and has a mission to serve and encourage meaningful and purposeful relationships in, out, and around the community. These connections are nurtured through spiritual practices, art, nature, and/or things that bring the individual(s) meaning and purpose.  On the one year anniversary of the program, Spiritual Care Coordinator Rev. Gregory Jones says:

Wow! How time flies when you’re having fun. It’s already been a full year since the implementation of the Spiritual Care Services here at the Consortium. And I must say, it’s been a great experience serving and meeting the needs of our individuals here at the Consortium. I knew when I started the Spiritual Care Service that it was going to be a lot of hard work and dedication to fulfill the needs of our individuals as it relates to their personal and spiritual connection(s) however that is expressed. I want to first express my gratitude to all the have supported me along this journey. I would like to thank Marylou and Tammy for giving me the opportunity to help our individuals to live out meaningful and purposeful lives. I would also like to thank Dan Vieu for believing in my abilities and giving me the opportunity to exercise my passion here at the Consortium. Thanks Dan!

I would also like to thank the House Managers, Residential Coordinator and especially Staff, for being open and willing to help me make such great and significant connections with our individuals. As I take this time to reflect over the last year, a lot comes to mind. I think about the tears in our eyes that we’ve shared together over the loss of one of our individuals to the joy that was sparked in the eyes of one of our individual when we had the chance to meet one of his favorite television personalities. From sorrow to smiles, it’s all been worth it. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as the Spiritual Care Coordinator here at the Consortium, and I’m looking forward to another year as well as making more meaningful connections with all of you as well as our individuals.

I would like to end this article on this note. We are all connected one to another for a greater purpose than we realize. I am committed in giving, serving and provide the best of myself for the serves of others. Thank you for allowing me to live and express that with all of you here at the Consortium.
