Pastoral Care Services
The Chaplaincy program at The Gardens on Tenth allows us to offer spiritual care to our residents. This program is supported almost entirely by local churches who donate to fund the Chaplaincy from their annual budgets.
Chaplain Peter Bartel has served residents of our organization for over a decade, and he also attends to the spiritual needs of clients at Eastview Place Personal Care Home.
Residents of The Gardens on Tenth can hear Morning Devotions broadcast Monday to Friday at Eastview Place (Personal Care Home, Altona) at 8:45 a.m. in the lounge of The Apartments and The Manor.
- Singing Devotions: first, third and fifth Mondays of the month
- Devotions: Tuesday to Friday of each week
- Thursday Afternoon Bible Story is also broadcast from Eastview Place at 2:30pm
- Thursday Morning Bible Study at 10:15 in the activity room of The Apartments
Led by the various churches of the community, according to the posted schedule, these services begin at 10:15 a.m. in The Apartment lounge area.
