Chaplaincy Services at Hospitals in St. John's -
When you are being admitted to a hospital in St. John's you will be asked, "While you are admitted to hospital, would you like to have a visit from a chaplain or pastoral care worker?" Be sure to say "Yes" if you would like a pastoral visit. You will then be asked to identify your religion, and your name will be added to the chaplain's visitation list, and you will then receive a visit from the denominational chaplain within a day or two.
Beyond the Altar Rail is a ministry that we offer to members who are
experiencing a short-term illness that is preventing them from attending our Holy
Eucharist on Sunday mornings. To ensure that you get to receive with your faith community, we will send a Eucharistic Assistant to your home with the bread
and wine during the service. All you need to do is to get your request into us on or before the Thursday prior to the service. Call us at 834-4501

and two full time clergy. It maintains our Parish Hall and our Church
building. It enables us to provide space for the Guiding Movement,
Al -anon , CLB, Sunday School, Old Comrades, ACW, and the many other groups / individuals to gather. It ensures that our church doors are
open for weddings, baptisms, confirmations, funerals and regular weekly worship services. A portion of your contribution goes toward hospital and University Chaplaincy, Labrador Ministry, and Queen's College.
