Mercy is committed to caring for your spiritual, emotional and physical health. Our integrated approach to healthcare reflects the rich legacy of the Sisters of Mercy, since 1831, and our founder Catherine McAuley. Mercy eagerly embraces and welcomes people from diverse spiritual and cultural backgrounds.

Mercy chaplains are trained spiritual care professionals and integral members of the healthcare team. Everywhere and every place we serve we want to meet you face to face, electronically, in a clinic, hospital or doctor’s office and we will provide a place of safety and hope for you to explore your spiritual needs.

Whether you receive a new diagnosis or difficult prognosis, face a hospital stay or surgery, grieve losses or, experience family or personal needs, we are here to assist you.


E-chaplaincy offers the anonymity people often prefer.  It is a quick and easy way to connect with a professional chaplain via e-mail.

Our chaplains treat all inquiries with confidentiality, however, despite the popularity of e-mail it can never be consider a secure method of communication and so personal details should be kept to a minimum.  Please note this is not a professional counseling service.  We address issues from a spiritual perspective.  However, we can provide a list of professional counselors if needed.

To Our Visiting Clergy

Welcome to Mercy!

Thank you for your ministry in the lives of the individuals and families you serve in your faith community.  Extending your care to them while they are hospitalized is very important.  Mercy values pastoral care as a significant element of the healing process.  We appreciate the important contribution you make to our patient’s lives and the ongoing spiritual connection you provide.

As colleagues in ministry, we want your comings and goings from the hospital to be as convenient as possible and we want to be available to help you in whatever manner you need.  Please feel free to call us at 314-251-6470 at any time with questions about how to navigate Mercy Hospital.

We look forward to our shared ministry.
