Spiritual and Religious Care Awareness Week (SRCAW) honours professional spiritual and religious care providers and celebrates the collaboration of staff, families and countless volunteers across the province of Ontario.
Spiritual and religious care is about listening, clarifying, counselling, and offering spiritual direction to those in need. When one is scared, lonely, confused, angry or disillusioned, spiritual and religious care providers will offer counsel and support, and when asked, will contact representatives from ones own faith group to assist in your care and comfort. Providers of spiritual and religious care serve those of any faith, and those of no faith at all.
Across Canada, thousands of dedicated and gifted spiritual and religious care givers of all faiths work in highly specialized settings such as hospitals, long term care facilities, correctional facilities, mental health centres and facilities for people with developmental disabilities.
Spiritual and Religious Care Awareness Week offers an opportunity to recognize the value of religious services and spiritual care and to honour those who provide the care.
Each year the Ontario Multifaith Council provides Spiritual and Religious Care Awareness Week packages to individuals and facilities across the province. Packages include posters, a Multifaith liturgy and other resources to help participants create awareness of the profession and to help celebrate this very special work.
