Pastoral Care to Spiritual Care and Chaplaincy
Our full-time chaplains, community clergy and lay people can provide patients, their families, and friends of all faiths pastoral and spiritual care, sacramental ministries, help with advance directives, and other spiritual support.
Our Pastoral Care team includes Protestant ministers, Roman Catholic priests, an Episcopal priest, and others who can be contacted upon request, including a Jewish rabbi, Buddhist priest, Muslim imam, and Hindu pandit.
To speak with a chaplain or to request a spiritual caregiver of a particular faith:
- Call 410-955-5842, Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm
- Call 410-955-4331 for urgent needs at other times
- Or ask your nurse to contact a chaplain
The Johns Hopkins Hospital provides weekly worship services and around-the-clock pastoral care. Your own clergyperson, faith community leader or spiritual counselor is also welcome in the hospital.
A Kosher Hospitality Suite with pantry is located in Blalock 175, open at all times to patients and family members in need of quiet space and kosher snacks. Bikur Cholim, a volunteer auxiliary service, provides this ministry.
Kosher meal offerings are available in the Cobblestone Café retail area for visitors and guests to purchase. Additionally, patients and guests visiting in patient rooms may order kosher meals by calling 410-502-3663, no later than 6:00 pm (6:30 pm for patients).
