Why is Lutheran Chaplaincy Outreach needed?

When someone goes to UIHC for medical treatment, it is often because of a serious medical condition.  They often are far way from their support systems – family, friends, and church community.  The LCO chaplain helps people through uncertain and frightening times, bringing the love and compassion of Christ through listening ear the sacraments, scripture and prayer.  The chaplain serves as the patient’s pastor when their own pastor cannot be there.
