Chaplaincy Department

Professional chaplains at Massachusetts General Hospital provide spiritual care to people of all traditions, cultures and beliefs. We embrace life-long learning, respect the dignity and worth of every person, and honor the sacredness of the human spirit.

Chaplains serve as liaisons, connecting members of the health care team, patients and families, and, if requested, clergy or other religious leaders in the community.

Chaplaincy services are free, private and confidential. Learn more
