CHAPLAINCY

 

Hospital Chaplaincy

Our chaplains work in the public hospitals in Western Sydney to provide emotional, spiritual and sacramental support to patients, their families and staff.

The experience of being in hospital can often mean being surrounded by illness, pain and despair. For patients and their families this can be a time of anxiety and stress. For others it is a time of spiritual questioning/connection. Our chaplains are there to provide a range of supports

  • Having someone to listen and sit with
  • Having someone to pray with
  • Helping you through grief and loss
  • Helping you explore your spirituality

We have a number of religious and lay chaplains working in the hospitals and priests are available to provide the sacraments when requested.
