Pastoral Care


A look inside the Chapel

The Department of Pastoral Care provides religious and spiritual support for patients and families. Your own clergyperson is an important member of the healthcare team and is welcome to visit you at any time. The Pastoral Care Department has an office on the first floor across from the cafeteria. The Chaplains in the Pastoral Care Department can provide a listening ear, prayer support, print, and other spiritual resources. Chaplains can help connect patients to what is meaningful for them.

Let your nurse know if you would like a Chaplain to visit or call 443-777-7827.

  • Relaxation/Meditation TV Channel: Channel 15 - Pastoral Care TV provides music and beautiful images designed to soothe the spirit and encourage relaxation. This service is provided free 24 hours-a-day.
  • Chapel: The Chapel is open 24 hours and offers a quiet, sacred space welcoming people of all faiths or no faith. An anonymous prayer journal is provided to receive prayer requests. The Chapel is located on the first floor off of the tower lobby. Just outside the chapel is a meditation garden (closed at night).
  • Roman Catholic Eucharistic Ministry/ Mass: Mass is celebrated at 11:30 a.m. in the Chapel every Wednesday and is televised live on Pastoral Care Channel 15.
