Rooted in theological integrity and sacred traditions we minister to the human condition to foster individual and corporate healing, meaning, and hope.
Our scope of practice
A chaplain is always available to patients, families and staff at Mercy. An integral part of the health care team, chaplains provide an interfaith ministry, nurturing patient values and beliefs and encouraging a more holistic approach to health care. Chaplains are available to patients and their loved ones in times of vulnerability—listening to hopes and fears, reconnecting people to their sources of strength and meaning, and transforming through prayer and ritual.
Staff chaplains at Mercy are (or are in process of becoming) board certified in the Association of Professional Chaplains. A Roman Catholic priest chaplain is also available for ministry to Catholic patients. At Mercy, the chapels are conveniently located on the main floor and are always open for prayer and meditation. If you want to reach the Spiritual Care and Pastoral Education office, please call 763-236-8738.
Clinical Pastoral Education at Mercy Hospital
Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) students are an important part of the Spiritual Care and Pastoral Education Department at Mercy. They also minister to patients, families, and staff as part of their educational program. CPE is an experiential form of theological education in clinical settings. Accredited by the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education, the Allina Health CPE Center trains chaplain students on each of the Allina Health metro hospital campuses.
