Chapel at All Hallows Hospital
The Pastoral Care Team works hand in hand with the medical and nursing staff in providing care and attention for the people who come to All Hallows Hospital.
The team consists of Chaplains from All Hallows Convent, a Lay person who visits twice a week from the Community of All Hallows and a counsellor. Each knows the importance of the spiritual aspect of people’s lives, caring for everyone as a whole person, body, mind and spirit.
The Clergy visit the Hospital regularly – both from the Convent and the surrounding Parishes. A Service of Holy Communion is held in the Chapel at 9.00am on Sunday mornings. They will also take communion to anyone who is too ill to go to Chapel. Other religious needs can be provided upon request.
Every member of the team is available for spiritual help. They will listen and give support in times of anxiety and distress.
The Chaplaincy team offer:
- The opportunity to receive Holy Communion or a blessing, either in the Hospital Chapel or in the patient’s own room.
- Regular visits with the opportunity to discuss non-medical issues in a confidential setting. This is offered on a non-denominational basis, to those of faith or not.
- Support to relatives whilst visiting a patient.
- Contact with the patient’s own clergy if needed. (The Chaplaincy staff are from the Anglican tradition)
