Foundation Funds Technology to Live Stream Catholic Masses to Patient Rooms

spiritual careSpiritual care at Ascension St. Mary’s is fundamental to our identity and a tangible expression of our Mission and Values. It is also an essential part of providing holistic care that treats the whole person: body, mind and spirit. 


Hospital associates, volunteers and chaplains all tend to spiritual needs at Ascension in various ways: 

  • Attending to the spirit through compassionate relationships and empathetic, effective communication

  • Encouraging shared decisions about care among patients, providers and care teams

  • Delivering safe, reliable, evidence-based care consistent with patient preferences

  • Chaplains are specially trained members of Ascension healthcare teams who help patients and their loved ones at our ministries cope with a range of health situations

  • Spiritual Care Departments support and counsel associates in delivering spiritual care

  • Associates and volunteers provide spiritual care as needed during their daily interactions

Schedule includes: 

Weekly Mass in Ascension St. Mary’s Chapel - Tuesday at Noon

Daily Mass at 8 am and 8 pm

These services are available on patient room televisions.
