Bishop Anderson House and the wider Chicago area are now being served by 24 recent graduates of Volunteer Lay Chaplain Training. This cadre of volunteers hailed from multiple faith traditions and neighborhoods, but bonded together as one, learning the skills of active listening, the gift of presence, and how to navigate the medical landscape.

Our newest alumni will be serving at Alexian Brothers Hospital, Northwest Community Hospital, and in their own congregations and communities.  We congratulate each graduate and wish them Godspeed as they bring the Care to Health Care.

Perhaps you feel called to become a volunteer chaplain.  Enrollment for Spring 2016 is open now through January 29. Learn more here and download application here.
