Spiritual Care

Facing a cancer diagnosis can be a challenging time for patients and caregivers. Spiritual care, both religious and secular, can be comforting and can help with these challenges.

A Chaplain is available, and can help you with:

  • Anxiety
  • Facing difficult life decisions
  • Making meaning of the illness
  • Grieving a loss
  • Finding inner resources of coping, strength or faith
  • Finding prayer, sacred texts, sacraments, healing or cultural rituals

Spiritual Care services are part of your care at the Odette Cancer Centre, and are also available for members of your family.

You do not need a referral from your doctor.

Visit us at TG-230 (on the ground floor of the Odette Cancer Centre)

Or call us at 416-370-4996.

The following quiet spaces are available for prayer, reflection, meditation, reading and worship:

  • Veterans Chapel or Main Chapel (with Blessed Sacrament Chapel)
  • Synagogue/Jewish Chapel
  • Muslim Prayer Room (with Women’s Prayer Section)

All of the above are located near the E-wing, McLaughlin Auditorium, located on the ground floor of the main hospital.
