The Allina Health Clinical Pastoral Education Center is an integral part of the metro Allina Health Spiritual Care and Pastoral Education Department.  

Our mission

The Allina Health CPE Center promotes a healing environment in which the patient and their loved ones receive meaningful and comforting pastoral care, in which the student learns the skills and art of ministry while experiencing positive personal growth, and in support of the Allina Health mission to prevent illness, restore health and provide comfort to all who entrust us with their care.

Our scope of practice

  • quality spiritual care - responding to the deepest healing needs of patients and their loved ones through spiritual assessment, care, and counseling in collaboration with health care staff 
  • clinical education for ministry - promoting a relationship between the hospitals & clinics and the religious community by developing competent, moral, and spiritually sensitive pastoral leaders
  • leadership in ethics - promoting values of a just society with the hospital, health system and broader community
