(PRESS RELEASE) – Patients at St Jude Hospital were able to praise and worship today as the institution commenced weekly spiritual service for patients, staff and visitors.
Today’s service was led by Bishop Antoine Charles of the Victory Pentecostal Church in Vieux Fort.
Worship service will take place every Wednesday from 12:00PM in the East Wing lobby of the George Odlum Stadium. It will be conducted by a different denomination each week of the Roman Catholic, Pentecostal, Seventh Day Adventist or Evangelical churches.
The service is open to patients, families, visitors and employees of all faiths.
Spiritual counselling and support is also available upon request to patients who are due to undergo surgery. Patients can make individual arrangements to speak to their pastor or priest.

This weekly worship service demonstrates the high value that St Jude Hospital places on the role that spirituality plays in the overall health and healing of our patients.
