Hospital Ministry

“When we come together, with tenderness, with those who have need of care,
we carry the hope and the smile of God." - Pope Francis

The Office of Institutional Chaplains directs the chaplains who serve in all the hospitals and correctional institutions operating in the State of Maine. If you have a question for the office, please contact the Diocese of Portland at 207-773-6471. Please visit the Office of Health Care Ministry, Archdiocese of Boston for several publications with concern to chaplaincy (www.rcab.org).
