Health Ministry

The Health Ministry provides training and resources for hospital chaplains.

A hospital chaplain provides spiritual support in the hospital environment to patients, hospital staff, and family members of all faiths.

Chaplains attend patients by request, or they may visit all patients in the hospital. Their goal is to provide spiritual support and counseling to help people who may be experiencing spiritual distress, and to bring in other religious practitioners if they are needed. Nondenominational counseling is also available.

Chaplains may also sit with dying patients and their families to provide support. Chaplains also bring Holy Communion to Catholic patients upon request.
