We would love to hear from you. If you have a story about a chaplain that you would like to share, please send it to us.

Friends of CP

For 71 years, our auxiliary, The Friends of Chaplain Partnership, have supplied our chaplains with a wonderful array of handmade items, including prayer shawls, lap robes, walker bags, baby blankets, mittens, hats and infant burial outfits. Our chaplains use these items to help bring comfort to those they minister. Recently, our Friends received the following […]

We’d love to hear your story!

Our chaplains make a difference. Whether it’s comforting the sorrowful, helping someone adjust to a scary diagnosis, offering a religious service or celebrating the birth of a child, our chaplains provide a listening, non-judgmental and supportive presence to those in need. If you’ve been ministered to by a chaplain and would care to share your story, […]

Grace and Gratitude

The following vignette was prepared by Chaplain Wayne Brass to be shared by a family member at the memorial service for a patient he had visited numerous times over several months. Names have been changed to honor individual’s privacy. 2 Corinthians 12:9-11 9 [The Lord] said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for […]

“My smile has returned…”

Dear Rev. Walsh, Thank you doesn’t seem like enough words for the time that you spent with me. You came in the room to meet with my husband, but you found me! Our visit was uplifting and got me to spread my wings instead of continue to nest and not venture out. God is warming […]

Thank You from a Medical School Student

Dear Rev. Werner, It was a great privilege to be able to shadow you and watch you work today. The experience helps me as a medical student understand aspects of patients and their care that I may not be able to experience as well while wearing a white coat. Thank you very much for your […]

My Afternoon with a Chaplain

Recently I had the opportunity, and the privilege, of shadowing a chaplain for an afternoon. Having been associated with Chaplain Partnership for over 12 years now, I can’t believe that I hadn’t done this before. Boy, what an experience! I entered this with no pre-conceived thoughts – eyes wide open, if you will. I only […]

A View from Within

As a retired nurse, having spent the majority of my career in an inner city emergency department, I know firsthand the importance of the presence of a chaplain. The pace in the emergency department is rapid and it’s necessary to prioritize all tasks. Persons with life-threatening events obviously take priority. When taking care of the […]

Celebrating a Loved One’s Life

One morning in February, I was paged to come to the ER. Upon my arrival, the staff was working on an elderly woman trying to revive her. I met some family members and escorted them to the family waiting room. It was there that I got to know about the mother and grandmother in the […]

Stories of Hope and Healing

Stepping back into my office after a long morning of doing rounds on my various hospital units, I found a note taped to my door. It was a request from a young husband who asked that I visit with his wife. She was recently admitted and they were awaiting a diagnosis so that a plan […]

Spiritual Connection

This note was sent to UH Case Medical Center Chaplain Harry Werner. Dear Rev. Werner, It was so great meeting you, and visiting, and I wanted to thank you for all of your visits. Bob (name changed) really enjoyed your cheerful attitude. It pepped him up and he liked talking about the service. You have […]
