WHAT IS A CHAPLAIN?

No one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others; the wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude. To all of the the Department of Juvenile Justice's current and past volunteers, the agency appreciates your tireless efforts on behalf of all Georgians. We truly cannot do it without you. Thank you for our continued support of our youth.

pastoral care

"A form of religious ministry to persons whether their situation is critical or not - it is a relationship as pastor (shephered) "to feed" or "to nourish" and to be a teacher to people in their search for the meaning of their past histories, the nature of their calling, life, and the quality of hope that endows their ultimate concerns."

-- Wayne E. Oates, The Christian Pastor

THE PURPOSE OF PASTORAL CARE

To bring into focus a calling, meaning and hope from out of pain, boredom, purposelessness, and despair of human existence. Pastoral Care is a durable, meaningful pastoral relationship offered by an identified religious person to promote the physical, emotional, social, and spirtual dimension of health and wholeness in human existence.
