The Royal North Shore Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care Department is founded on the belief that total care encompasses the whole person-physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual needs.
We offer spiritual care services to all patients, their families and to staff.

Chaplains and pastoral carers offer:

  • A listening ear, time to discuss religious or spiritual issues
  • Prayer and sacraments
  • Spiritual and emotional support during times of illness, grief and loss

Chaplains are available for all patients of all faiths and to those of no religious affiliation. On-site chaplains include:

  • Anglican
  • Presbyterian
  • Roman Catholic
  • Uniting Church
  • Intensive Care Unit chaplain


At your request we can contact a minister, priest, rabbi, Buddhist, Muslim and Hindu pastoral care visitor or a representative of your faith tradition.

A visit from a chaplain can also be arranged through the hospital staff and in an emergency a staff member can page the duty chaplain or priest.


The Chapel is a multi-faith space open to all for prayer and reflection. It is open from 7am - 9pm daily.

Catholic mass is offered at 1pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and 4pm Sundays.
Christian meditation is offered from 1.30-2pm on Wednesdays.
Muslim prayer rooms are located adjacent to the Chapel and are open from 5am-10pm daily.
