We are dedicated to meeting the spiritual needs of our residents, their families, and staff by providing pastoral support, worship opportunities, visitation, counseling, and prayer.
Protestant worship services, led by Lutheran pastors, are held at each affiliate on a weekly basis. Roman Catholic services are also held weekly at each affiliate. We encourage visits by members of our residents’ home congregation and spiritual leaders, as well.
The GreenFields provides health care services to nearly 500 individuals on any given day. In order to provide pastoral care to such a large number of people, we organized a team of Chaplain Assistants (CAs). Chaplain Assistants visit and pray with those in need of pastoral care, provide a listening ear, and refer those with greater needs to our Chaplain, Reverend David Belasic. They also bring Holy Communion to residents unable to attend regularly scheduled worship services.
The Chaplain Assistant program, which began in February 2009, was made possible through a grant from the Lutheran Church Extension Society of Buffalo. For more information about our Chaplain Assistant program, please call Kristen Glieco at (716) 684-0202, ext. 1801.
