PRESS RELEASE – PATIENTS at St. Jude Hospital are now able to offer praise and worship as the institution this week commenced weekly spiritual service for patients, staff and visitors.
Last Wednesday’s service was led by Bishop Antoine Charles of the Victory Pentecostal Church in Vieux Fort.
Worship service will take place every Wednesday from 12:00 p.m. in the East Wing lobby of the George Odlum National Stadium and will be conducted by a different denomination each week: Roman Catholic, Pentecostal, Seventh Day Adventist or Evangelical churches.
The service is open to patients, families, visitors and employees of all faiths.
Spiritual counselling and support are also available upon request to patients who are due to undergo surgery and patients can make individual arrangements to speak to their pastor or priest.
St. Jude Hospital also ensures that patients receive their last rites from the religion of their choice.
This weekly worship service demonstrates the high value that St. Jude Hospital places on the role that spirituality plays in the overall health and healing of our patients.
The hospital thanks the Victory Pentecostal Church, Vieux Fort Seventh Day Adventist Church, Vieux Fort Evangelical Church and Roman Catholic Church for availing themselves to this important initiative and supporting the spiritual care of our patients, staff and visitors.
