What does St Luke’s Healthcare for the Clergy do?
St Luke’s supports the physical and mental health of the Anglican clergy. We want the clergy and their families to be physically and psychologically healthy and able to carry out their ministry free from stress and preventable health problems.
When they are ill, we help the clergy get back to an active role in their communities as quickly as possible. We do this in a number of ways, depending on need. Care and advice is delivered in a compassionate and timely way, with complete confidentiality.
Because we take a ‘whole person’ approach to health, St Luke’s has recently developed services that take a preventative approach to mental health and wellbeing. These resources are available to clergy via their diocese, and are in addition to one-to-one therapy and counselling that St Luke’s can offer in certain cases.
Clergy and their families who have used our services tell us what a difference St Luke’s has made to their lives and ministries. We understand clergy needs because we have been caring for the health and wellbeing of the Anglican clergy since 1892.
