Pastoral care or spiritual care is a ministry of support to any person in their pain, loss and anxiety and their triumph, joys and victories.
Pastoral care reaches out to such people wherever they are, offering consolation and encouragement, in whatever form is appropriate to the person at the time.
The type of support needed may vary from day to day. The chaplain must accept them irrespective of their condition, their religious background, their virtues and their vices. The chaplain shows no prejudice, judgmental attitude, or superior air toward their social position, their faith belief use of language or their ethnicity.
The State Chaplaincy Board is not an incorporated body, nor is it part of Queensland Corrective Services. The Board is simply a convenient mechanism through which the Churches and other religious bodies:
(a) coordinate the pastoral care services that they offer into the prison system; and
(b) negotiate and administer the funding agreement that they have with Queensland Corrective Services to provide chaplaincy services.
