Departure of Our Full-Time Chaplain.  It is with gratitude and thanksgiving, along with heavy hearts, that the Chaplaincy Committee of East District announce that Rev. Scott Parsons has completed his work as Chaplain with East District, Newfoundland and Labrador Conference, serving the St. John’s Eastern Health sites of Health Sciences, the Janeway, the Leonard A. Miller Centre and Veteran’s Pavilion, along with Her Majesty’s Penitentiary.  Scott has been a very compassionate and caring giver of pastoral care and has been a joy to work with throughout his over ten years in this position.  He will be greatly missed.  We wish him all God’s blessings in his new ministry as Clinician for Eastern Health at Health Sciences and the Janeway.

 We do wish to advise that we are actively seeking a new chaplain and that during this time of transition, pastoral care continues to be provided without interruption at all sites.  If you or a family member are admitted to hospital, and would like pastoral care or a visit from the chaplain while in hospital, please ensure the admission forms are marked “Yes” for pastoral care and the patient’s name will be included on the chaplain’s list for visitation.
