What is Chaplain Support?

“The Spiritual Care Corps provides invaluable services to Maine people most at need during this pandemic,” said Dr. Nirav D. Shah, Director of the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention. “Chaplains are there when Maine people most need them, whether it is by serving as a compassionate link between families and loved ones with COVID-19 or by providing much-needed support to those who care for COVID patients.”

The chaplains of the Maine Responds Spiritual Care Corps (SCC) are here if you need us. Whether you are a follower of an established faith tradition or not, we are here to listen and provide support to you and members of your organization as we deal with the spiritual and emotional aspects of COVID-19. A chaplain meets with people while respecting their experiences and feelings, listens and provides a calm, honoring presence, creates and holds nonjudgmental space, and always maintains confidentiality.

Maine Responds Spiritual Care Corps (SCC) chaplains are compassionate listeners available to you from 8am to 8pm for one-on-one conversations by phone and to provide group facilitation for spiritual wellness groups using Zoom. SCC interfaith chaplains are here if you need us. Call (207) 441-5466.
