October is Hospital Chaplaincy Apostolate month! The director of this ministry for ArchCare, John Schultz, BCC, recently ran in a NYS marathon to kick off ArchCare’s October focus to raise awareness and funding the Hospital Chaplaincy Apostolate.. ArchCare has placed 23 priests and religious chaplains to support 26 hospitals and 3 nursing homes throughout the archdiocese. These Catholic chaplains minister to well over 100,000 patients annually, often at a time of deep spiritual need and crisis for them and their families. They also minister to hospital staff as they deal with patient care and difficult situations. In our own parish, Fr. Joseph Narisetty is assigned at Nyack Hospital full time to minister to the many Catholic patients in need there.
This is beautiful ministry where the Church is meeting people where they are, when they need it most. It is the work of evangelization and healing: reminding those who need it most that God is with them and they are not alone; helping them to achieve peace or come closer to it; bringing life more abundantly.
The impact of this care is deep and meaningful. In one case, a priest helped an elderly patient return to God and his faith after 50 years away from the Church; in another, a priest helped reconcile an elderly dying man with his ex-wife; in countless others, priests help patients who are dealing with significant health issues to connect with themselves, others and God. More information about this important and beautiful ministry is included in the link below. Please help support it through a contribution and pass this message and link on to anyone who might be interested in providing support. It would also be great if you could share this appeal on any applicable social media. Thank you for anything you can do.
