Pastoral Care


For Spiritual Care

Physical illness often creates stress in a patient's personal life. It can be helpful for patients, families and friends to have somebody to talk with about the experience of illness. The CMMC Pastoral Care Department is committed to providing religious and spiritual care for those who would like such assistance.

The Pastoral Care Department office and the Scott Willie Cameron Memorial Chapel are located on the ground floor. For detailed directions go to the online map .

The following services are available through the Pastoral Care Department:

Chaplains

Chaplains are available to talk with people of all faiths, including those who are not affiliated with any identified or organized religious group. If you'd like to be visited by a chaplain, dial 2291 between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. You may reach a chaplain at other times by dialing "0" and asking the operator to contact the chaplain. You may also ask your nurse to contact a chaplain for you.

The Sacraments

Protestant chaplains, Roman Catholic chaplains and rabbis are available to help you with special sacraments of your faith. Daily reception of Holy Communion is available to Catholics. The Pastoral Care office may be able to help locate clergy of other faiths as well. If you'd like assistance, call 2291, contact the switchboard or talk with your nurse.

Scott Willie Cameron Memorial Chapel

The chapel is available 24-hours-a-day for prayer and meditation. You and your family are welcome to visit the chapel and use it for your own spiritual needs.
