Volunteer In Pastoral Care

By volunteering in pastoral care at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital, you help patients receive spiritual nourishment and comfort that encourages healing.

Volunteer Opportunities

You may feel called to serve as:

  • An initial volunteer – Visit new inpatients to learn their religious affiliation so a pastoral care staffer can coordinate spiritual care with their faith communities.
  • A Eucharistic minister – If you’re in good standing with your Catholic parish, become part of the Pastoral Care department Eucharistic minister team which ensures Holy Communion is offered daily to patients.

Volunteer On Your Schedule

Volunteer once a month or as often as once a week. Schedule your shifts at the most convenient times for you.
