Retired Bishop defaulted to "no faith" in hospital classification

Bishop Paul Mason, our Lead Bishop for Health and Social Care, was a hospital chaplain for many years. He observed that, very often, patients or their family members would make the assumption that the priest will be informed that the patient is a Catholic or that his or her spiritual needs will be catered for. Bishop Mason uses the example of a retired bishop he visited on his rounds who had a rather surprising hospital classification when it came to his religious beliefs... #faith #hospital #healthcare #spirituality #chaplain #catholic
