Support Services

Pastoral Care
The Bon Secours Mission is "good help to those in need". Chaplaincy services assist in restoring and maintaining health to all who come to be healed, recognising that the total care of patients involves not only physical and psychological aspects of the person, but spiritual care as well.

We respect the different cultures and value systems of all entrusted to us.

A Chaplain is available to:
  • sit and listen
  • offer emotional/spiritual/social support
  • offer prayer or Sacrament.
  • enable patients in accepting their disability/illness.
Eucharist is celebrated daily in our Hospital Chapel. Holy Communion is distributed immediately afterwards to patients, on request, by a Chaplain or Eucharistic Minister.
All services from the Chapel are relayed to patients through the Television on Channels 13 or 44.

Our Chaplains aim to support the patient to live and die their spirituality to the end. This care extends to include the patient's family and significant others.

The Hospital is visited regularly by Church of Ireland, Presbyterian and Methodist Chaplains.

Spiritual Chaplains or Leaders of other denominations are contacted when patients express the need and are always welcome.
