Patients & Visitors Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

​​​​At SSM Health St. Mary's Hospital – Janesville, we are committed to revealing the healing presence of God through our exceptional health care services… and through prayer.

How can a chaplain help?

  • Listening to your story
  • Helping you identify spiritual needs and issues
  • Praying with you and for you
  • Providing resources for spiritual growth and comfort
  • Helping you make your choices in critical times and stressful situations
  • Contacting your faith community or spiritual leader
  •  Arranging for sacramental care of rituals

Being hospitalized can be a difficult time for patients and family members alike. Spiritual support can help with the stress, fears and anxiety that people may experience during a hospital stay. Chaplain services help to provide a sense of healing and comfort.

If you would like to request the chaplain to visit please tell your nurse.


The Chapel is open 24 hours daily. It provides a serene environment for patients and visitors to reflect, regroup and pray. Catholic Mass is celebrated in the hospital Chapel every second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 2 pm.
