The Activities of the Jaffna Teaching Hospital Chaplaincy

The Annual Lenten Pilgrimage
The Hospital Chaplain along with the Hospital Staff and the volunteers made their Lenten pilgrimage to Wahakotte and participated in a meaningful Way of the Cross. It was a time for them to actively be involved in these Lenten activities. There were about 120 participants who made use of this opportunity.

Lenten charity
It is customary that the hospital staff and Nursing Students render their extending help to the Dialysis patients (the patients affected by Chronicle Kidney Diseases – CKD) and to the patients in the Paediatric Ward. Thus, they donated some milk powder and pampers and cookies. It was the result of their Lenten sacrifices that they have made.
