MikeGatliff-SideBarGreenwich Chaplaincy Director Rev. Mike Gatliff will speak at the Sept. 3 Retired Mens’ Association meeting. Prior to becoming Director of Greenwich Chaplaincy, The Rev. Mike Gatliff served in pastoral ministry for about thirty years in churches. The first fifteen years were spent in youth ministry, and the next fifteen working with adults. During, the last five years he helped Baby Boomers learn how to navigate their “Second Act.”

Greenwich Chaplaincy Services was founded in 1968 by the Greenwich Fellowship of Clergy to provide pastoral and spiritual care to the residents, staff and families of nursing homes and assisted living facilities in the Town of Greenwich as well as to the residents’ families and the staff of the facilities. GCS provides worship services, bible studies, discussion groups, personal visitation and personal counseling, serving a variety of religious traditions as well as those who have no religious affiliation.

GCS partners with seven senior care facilities in Greenwich with the goal of helping those facilities become more vibrant and effective in serving seniors. Full-time, part-time and volunteer chaplains provide services to: Fairview of Greenwich Rehabilitation and Health Care Center, The Greens at Greenwich, Assisted Living Residence, Greenwich Woods Rehabilitation and Health Care Center, Greenwich Adult Day Care’s River House, The Mews Senior Residence, The Nathaniel Witherell Short-Term Rehabilitation and Health Care Center and Parsonage Cottage Senior Residence.

Rev. Gatliff studied at both Princeton Seminary and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, graduating from the latter in 1984 with his Master of Divinity. He graduated from Florida State University in 1977. He is married to The Rev. Jacky Gatliff of Stanwich Congregational Church, Greenwich, and has two children.

“It is a great privilege to offer spiritual care for the seniors of Greenwich, their families, as well as their caregivers — and it is a joy to serve alongside my fellow chaplains, all of whom are dedicated to loving and serving our seniors,” Rev. Gatliff said.
