Chaplaincy Services

OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center is dedicated to treating every patient with the greatest care and love in the spirit of Jesus Christ.

The mission of our Chaplaincy Services Department is to ensure every patient in our medical center is spiritually cared for and comforted.

Our compassionate Chaplaincy Services staff is available 24 hours a day to offer holistic spiritual care, pastoral support, and encouragement to all patients, their families, and our medical center staff.

Chaplaincy Services staff visit our patients to help acquaint them with the pastoral services available and offer support and comfort.

Our Chaplaincy Services staff respond to patient and visitor prayer requests of a pastoral need, specifically praying for each need daily. The Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis and Chaplaincy Services are privileged to intercede and bring your needs before God.

Patients and their family members may request administration of the Sacrament of the Anointing of The Sick by a priest.

Chaplaincy Services will also notify the patient or their family’s own faith community or pastor if requested.
