Since its founding by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Chambery in 1897, Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center has recognized the spiritual component of healing and wellness.

Through the mission of Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center each employee and volunteer is encouraged to revere the spirituality of each other and all of our patients and their families. A vibrant staff of professional chaplains in the Department of Pastoral Care supports this commitment by providing spiritual and pastoral care to patients and family members of all beliefs and faith traditions any time during their stay.

For emergencies outside routine hours, a chaplain may be reached by dialing "0" from within the hospital or 860-714-4000 from outside the hospital. Chaplains are also available to provide support to hospital staff.

The Pastoral Care Ministry Group is responsible to the Church Council for ensuring a caring community and a strong network of support for the congregation wholly and individually.

The core responsibility of the group is to monitor the welfare of congregation members and build up the congregation in faith, hope and love.

The group meets bi-monthly to share the concerns of congregation members and respond to any needs accordingly.  In particular the group maintains an awareness of those who are ill or in other need.  Home communion services are arranged by the group throughout the year to cater for those unable to attend church on Sunday morning.
