Chaplaincy & Spiritual Care
“It’s all about service. We come here to serve.” This is how PioneerCare’s Chaplain Harry Olson sums up his role. How that passion for service is carried out provides for the spiritual needs of residents, their families and Pioneer staff.
Building relationships with residents is a key element of what Chaplain Olson does each day. “By the time a resident comes to us, they have already experienced a great deal of loss: loss of the family home, family members, and their home church as they’ve moved away. I like to create community for these people. Together we look at photos, have coffee and talk about those things that were part of their lives. I really believe this feeling of belonging offers them a sense of hope, comfort, and security.”
Chaplaincy services are available every day at Pioneer. A variety of choices include Bible studies, worship services, communion, music, and one-on-one spiritual visits.
Our chaplaincy services are dedicated to meeting people where they are in their lives and to minister to their families as well. Pioneer is sensitive to each individual’s spiritual life and offers ministry that best fits individual needs.
Nurture and kindness, caring and compassion — that’s what chaplaincy at PioneerCare is all about.
