Spiritual Care for Holistic Health
Spirituality may be defined as an individual’s sense of peace, purpose and connection to others and beliefs about the meaning of life. It is known that spiritual well-being aids the healing process.
Religion, which is a part of spirituality, may be defined as a specific set of beliefs and practices, usually within an organized group or church. At Mercy, we know that not everyone belongs to a specific religion, but we believe that every person has a spiritual dimension and spiritual needs.
