Saint Thomas Hospital Ministers share the light of Christ by tending to the sick of our parish. As an extension of our faith community, hospital ministers reach out, comfort and encourage those who need Jesus’ message of mercy and peace. If you are a compassionate person who enjoys praying with people and supporting their healing process, consider joining this ministry.  The ministry group meets once a year for support, ministry updates and on-going training. Members commit to visiting one day a week and may see 2-5 people in the hospital. A schedule is determined by member availability. Contact Hospital Minister Leader, Tim Allard at (616) 942-7812 for more information.

If you or someone you know would like to be visited during a hospital stay, please call the Parish Office (616) 459-4662 to confirm a visit from a hospital minister. Please remember to pray for the sick of our parish and for the hospital ministers who visit them.
