Pastoral Care And Spiritual Support

Spiritual Support You Can Rely On

St. Mark’s Hospital provides pastoral care services for the spiritual and emotional needs of patients and their families in Salt Lake County. We understand how important this support means to individuals and loved ones when facing the news of a new diagnosis, or in dealing with the unknown or anticipation of death, grief and loss.

St. Mark's Hospital Pastoral Care Center

Our hospital chaplains are committed to providing spiritual care for our patients, patient families and hospital staff members.  Father Lincoln Ure serves as the Center’s director of pastoral care, supervisor of the Clinical Pastoral Education program, and also serves as a hospital staff chaplain.  Under Ure’s supervision, St. Mark’s Hospital is privileged to have two additional staff chaplains, three resident chaplains and three student chaplains to serve the spiritual needs of our hospital community.

The Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) program is accredited by The Association of Clinical Pastoral Education as a Level I and Level II center.  The St. Mark’s Hospital CPE program is open to all interested individuals and does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, age, faith group, national origin, sexual orientation, or physical disability.
