Can Community of Hope Be of Service to You and Yours?

October 8, 2020 Community, Fellowship

The St. George Community of Hope International (COHI) has trained lay chaplains who are available to minister to those of you and yours who could benefit from a compassionate listening presence. 

 In 1994 Rev. Helen Appelberg created the COHI training course for lay chaplains to support hospital staff chaplains. The philosophy is “rooted in the ageless principles of The Rule of Benedict and sustained by clinical pastoral practices.”

COHI lay chaplains at St. George are available now. If you would like to request a call from a lay chaplain, email
