Brother Raphael Mieszala, O.H.
Director of Pastoral Care
Brother Raphael oversees the organization's pastoral care program, which is a program utilized by both clients and employees. Pastoral care allows a person in need to reflect upon, vocalize or practice those values of spirituality that the person feels she or he needs to acquire, maintain or regain for his or her own holistic well-being. Spirituality may include religion or religious practices, but the terms are not synonymous. Spirituality incorporates all phases of awareness of the person with the rest of creation.
Brother Raphael became a registered nurse (Illinois and Florida) in 1970 then joined the Brothers of the Good Shepherd in 1971. He was sent to law school and was admitted to the New Mexico bar in 1992. Brother Raphael was transferred to Camillus House/Camillus Health Concern in 1997 during which time he worked in nursing and administration. In early 2003, Brother Raphael was sent for theological studies after which he was ordained a Roman Catholic priest in June of 2005. Brother Raphael rejoined Camillus in May of 2006.
