Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) is theological, pastoral, spiritual, and professional education for ministry. In CPE, theological students, ordained clergy, members of religious communities, and qualified lay people, minister to people in crisis situations under the training of a qualified, ACPE certified educator.

Level I CPE

Level II CPE

Addresses advanced competencies and issues of pastoral function, reflection, and integration. Level II competencies are met through a program of at least four units of CPE, including Level I CPE units completed in one or more authorized ACPE centers.

Why Take CPE at St. Camillus?

The Camillian approach to health care is holistic and ecumenical. By providing services to the poor, the sick, and the elderly with a sense of compassion and love, the St. Camillus Campus offers hope and meaning to those who are suffering, comfort and security to those who are aging, and serenity to those who are dying, taking into account each person’s innate dignity, unique needs, and God- given rights.

Out of intense involvement with ACPE certified educator/s, other students, people in crisis, and other professionals, CPE students are challenged to improve, deepen, and expand the quality of their pastoral relationships.

Through viewing complicated life situations from different viewpoints, students are able to gain new insights and understanding about the human situation.

 CPE students will have the opportunity to minister to a diverse client population. Some of our resource areas for specialization in ministry include:

Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, Skilled Nursing, and Hospice.

Our Center is under the accreditation of:
