Hospital & Prison Ministry
‘’Charity above all…charity in Jesus Christ’’ was Libermann’s parting mandate to his followers. Spiritans in Britain have been drawing inspiration from this mandate over the years, and hence have been open to a consistent and creative hospital and prison ministry.
The Spiritan priests in most of the Parishes entrusted to the Spiritans have a formal and an exciting hospital chaplaincy engagement with the NHS Trusts (Hospitals) in their area.
There are however some Spiritans who are formally and fully engaged by the NHS Foundation Trusts as part of the hospital chaplaincy team.
