Pastoral Care Volunteer Opportunities

Mercy is pleased to have many volunteers as partners in our healthcare ministry.

Mercy’s Pastoral Services Department offers various volunteer ministry opportunities to individuals who are active with local denominations or faith groups. If you wish to join the Pastoral Services team in a volunteer capacity, you need to complete an application through the Volunteer Services Department.

When accepted, you will attend the general orientation session that the hospital requires of all volunteers.  You will then be scheduled to interview in the Pastoral Services Department.

If we have a pastoral volunteer position that is a good fit for you, we will orient you to the Pastoral Services Department and, depending on your previous experience and your volunteer role, provide you specialized training regarding the various aspects of supporting our patients. You will also receive on-going supervision and various opportunities for continuing education and growth in the caring ministries.
