St. Joseph's web site to feature prayer intention service


In observance of World Day of the Sick on February 11, St. Joseph's Pastoral Care Department today announced the availability of a prayer intention service on the Hospital's web site (www.stjosephs.org). While not specifically earmarked for hospital patients, this new service is available for any individual.

Once a prayer request has been submitted through the Hospital's web site to the Pastoral Care Department, the intention becomes included in the St. Joseph's The Healer Chapel prayer book, located just outside the Hospital's chapel door on the Hospital's ground floor. All submitted intentions are remembered during daily rosary and Mass, which is televised throughout the Hospital's closed circuit network.

Each St. Joseph's patient receiving a prayer intention receives a card from the Pastoral Care Department. Discharged patients or non-St. Joseph's patients receiving prayer intentions are informed via e-mail.

Individuals submitting prayer intentions are encouraged to respect a person's privacy. All prayer intentions should be general in nature and should not include any information considered to be confidential or private. For example, all prayer intention requests should not include the recipient's last name, address or any specific details about the person.
