Abstract
As a chaplain with the Hospice Care Network in Long Island, N.Y., I serve many individuals and families who are at the end of their life cycle with varied faith beliefs. The question is can Chaplains help people of multifaiths mourn together, in an effort to discover peace, healing, and comfort in God during the bereavement process. This project will establish written guiding principles useful for Chaplains/Clergy engaged in the bereavement setting. Chaplains are not involved in the Bereavement group process at the Hospice Care Network. Licensed Social Workers operate as Bereavement counselors, yet Chaplains whom serve as spiritual care counselors during the patient’s disease progression and who often officiate at their funerals and memorials are not included. For many people, faith is a present and continuing reality, while others may argue that things, which have no reality in themselves, are made real by faith. As such I would like to see if and how faith plays a role for those who grieve the loss of loved ones within a multifaith bereavement group setting.
