Carinity chaplains provide compassionate spiritual care, support, encouragement and a listening ear to people in aged care, hospitals, schools and prisons across Queensland.  The Chaplains provide effective, coordinated pastoral care to people of all faiths and no faith.

Whether in hard times or times of great happiness, sharing our situation with someone else can halve our troubles and double our joy.  Sometimes trusted friends and family are nearby to give that support while at other times they are not – or maybe a person is looking for a greater depth of spiritual support. These are the times when chaplains are so important. An integral part of the community, chaplains bring hope, spiritual care, support and encouragement to people in times of need, or simply provide a listening ear and company when required.

Carinity chaplains enjoy confidentially listening and helping people on their journeys with empathy and compassion. Carinity chaplains work and volunteer throughout Queensland.

As long as people have walked the earth, we’ve struggled to notice the special in the ordinary. When he began his work, Jesus was well received in every town except his home town. In Nazareth, people said, “That's just Joseph’s son”. To them he was … ordinary. He was from their home town. Places, people, circumstances – they’re special if we have the eyes to see it. If you can’t see the special in the ordinary, ask God to open your eyes.

Thought of the day


Businesses close in the USA on the third Monday every January to remember Martin Luther King Jr – the famous advocate for social justice. To observe a public holiday powerfully expresses people’s desire for justice. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech set the agenda for racial peace and equity - still often quoted today. It is good to think of King’s message in our own lives. He was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 until his assassination in 1968. His notable quotes include, "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that"; "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere", and "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." Martin Luther King Jr died as Jesus did whom he followed, working for good. What more needs to be said? "But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!" (The Prophet Amos 5:24 NIV).
