Spiritual care is a key component of all care offered at Franciscan Health. Our e-Chaplaincy program at our Northern Indiana hospitals extends that care beyond our hospital walls. Patients and families can now reach a chaplain via email to help with stress and spiritual concerns.
Franciscan Health's certified chaplains are reaching beyond hospital walls to their websites to offer a resource to those in need of a spiritual helping hand. Our e-Chaplaincy program offers outpatients and the public another resource to have their concerns addressed through an initial email request. The e-Chaplaincy program expands chaplains’ opportunities to deal with spiritual distress and assistance needs.

e-Chaplaincy gives patients and the community an electronic platform where they can engage with a chaplain for prayer and support in a completely confidential way.
We welcome all e-chaplain inquiries and we treat them with sensitivity and strict confidentiality.

Please note that we address issues from a spiritual/pastoral care perspective. We are not a professional counseling service. You are not under any obligation to speak with a chaplain on the phone, but if you prefer a phone conversation, please provide your phone number and a chaplain will contact you directly.
