Hospital Chaplaincy

Hospital Chaplains are ministers of comfort and solace for patients with serious, life threatening illnesses and for their loved ones. Chaplains offer spiritual sustenance and lend an empathetic ear to those who are failing in health and those who are preparing for, or grieving, a heartbreaking loss. With deep reservoirs of compassion from which they draw through the prayers they offer, the sometimes difficult but necessary conversations they facilitate, or by simply sitting in peaceful silence with patients and their loved ones, Chaplains convey the blessing of real relief. Your Appeal gifts are helping to make it possible for archdiocesan priests to serve as Chaplains at hospitals in Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, the Johns Hopkins Hospital (Baltimore City and Bayview locations) and University of Maryland Medical Centers in Baltimore City.
