Pastoral Care

Mercy Stained Glass Window At Mercy, we understand that spiritual and emotional care is as important as medical care when it comes to healing the mind and body. Our Pastoral Care Department offers a wide variety of faith-based services to patients, families and friends of all faiths.

As a Catholic hospital, Mercy celebrates Mass and provides Holy Communion and other sacraments for Catholic patients and their loved ones. In addition, the Pastoral Care staff offers non-denominational, ecumenical services and programs and can assist in making the sacraments of your church available to you during your stay at Mercy.

To contact the Pastoral Care Department, please call 515-247-3238.
