When to Call a Chaplain

When to Call a Chaplain (for patients):

  • When you are anxious about your or your loved one’s condition
  • When you receive bad news
  • When you need spiritual encouragement
  • When you need assistance with a religious observance or tradition while in the hospital (i.e. dietary needs, fasting, Shabbat candles, Holy Communion, Sacrament of the Sick)
  • When you want someone to pray with you
  • When you are struggling with the meaning of your illness
  • When you are grieving a loss
  • For spiritual and emotional support during hospitalization (before or after a procedure, while awaiting test results, when making decisions, preparing for discharge from hospital, etc.)
  • For 1-on-1 guided meditation
  • For referral to local community of worship
