Hospital Chaplains

Introduction

Hospital Chaplains are available at all times.  We offer:

  • a supportive presence
  • a listening ear
  • comfort in times of distress
  • and if wished for, prayer or the sacraments.

 

We may officiate at baptisms, weddings and funerals.

 

There are three part-time hospital chaplains available for staff and patients.  We are supplemented by three volunteer chaplaincy assistants.
