Interfaith Health Care Association of Manitoba

The Province of Manitoba has proclaimed the week of October, 18 - 24, 2020 as the Spiritual Health Awareness Week

Spiritual Health Awareness Week (SHAW) provides an opportunity to recognize the value and dedication of spiritual and religious service providers of all faiths who work in specialized settings such as, hospitals, long-term care facilities, mental health centres and correctional facilities.

While the world grapples with the unfolding Covid-19 crisis, we as faith communities need to begin by acknowledging the tremendous work of frontline workers, by having compassionate empathy for the hardship that our communities are facing, and by looking forward to advice and wisdom of leaders and planners thinking of post Covid-19.

This year's overarching theme is "Nurturing Spiritual Health and Resilience Amidst a Pandemic" and each day of the work week will focus on the following sub-themes:

Whole Person Health

Connections and Relationships

Culture and Community

Mindfulness and Compassion



Each of these sub-themes will have something to watch, something to read, and something to do.  Please click on each menu throughout the course of the week.
