Our chaplain volunteers play a very important role in helping patients and their families through difficult times, regardless of individual’s personal faith background or belief system. Because spiritual care needs can arise at any time, volunteering as a chaplain requires availability overnight and on weekends.
For more information or to apply to be in the chaplain volunteer program, please contact Katie Fullen at 432-582-8399 or [email protected]
