Jewish Patients

A volunteer Jewish chaplain visits patients regularly. In addition, challah is brought to our Jewish patients as a welcoming ritual of the coming Sabbath.

Catholic Patients

Holy Communion is available to Catholic patients only upon specific request. Patients who wish to receive Communion on Sundays are asked to call Ext. 2944 and leave their name and room number anytime on Saturday evening before 9 p.m. Catholic clergy are regularly available to provide additional sacramental support for urgent matters.
