Pastoral Care Volunteers
Wheeling Hospital is fortunate to have many volunteers working in the Pastoral Care Department. They come from many different walks of life and have a wealth of skills and diverse professions. They fulfill many different tasks, enabling the chaplains to provide pastoral care.
The department also has a group of men and women trained to assist the chaplains in ministry. These individuals offer pastoral care with patients, families and staff, and provide an extension to the regular ministry of the hospital chaplains.
In addition, a group of volunteers serve as Eucharistic ministers for the patients at Wheeling Hospital. These individuals distribute Holy Communion to patients throughout the week and on Sunday.
