Bethesda Chapel & Spiritual Care

Bethesda Hospital, a member of HealthEast, offers Spiritual Care to people of all religions, cultures and faith traditions. Chaplains provide spiritual support by listening, praying, offering Sacraments, facilitating communication and helping resolve ethical concerns.

Bethesda’s interfaith chapel and the meditation room are located on the first floor. Both the chapel and meditation room are open 24 hours and available for prayer and meditation.

Your faith needs

Your own pastor or faith group leader is welcome to visit you while you are at Bethesda. Chaplains make regular visits with patients and families at Bethesda. In addition, a chaplain and a Roman Catholic priest are available at all times for emergency needs.

In the event that you have a particular faith group need, the Spiritual Care department has a list of available clergy and faith group leaders in the St. Paul area.
