Special Events

2014 Pastoral Care Week Commemorates at SLV

Residents, families, staff, and friends are currently celebrating Pastoral Care Week 2014 by recognizing its patron saint St. Luke and his feast day observed on October 18. Several special events are being commemorated such as an Ecumenical Inter-Faith Services, Blessings of the Hands, Proclamations, and several socials and gatherings are happening daily.  Regardless of spiritual, religious or cultural background, Pastoral Care Week celebrates those who provide spiritual support to others and the impact it has on community. This year’s theme, “Spiritual Well-Being” highlights "Nourshing the Wellspring," which refers to supporting and inspiring the spriritual well-being of ourselves and others amid times of both ease and challenge.  We sincerely thank and honor the works and gifts of professional chaplaincy and pastoral /spiritual care leaders and givers as well as the spiritual needs of those who serve. We at SLV acknowledge and commend these dynamic individuals for all they do.   

Happy Pastoral Care Week!
