In 2013, Angela, a person with a deep personal faith in God, responded to a calling in her life to make a difference in the lives of the ill, the injured and the dying. A former elementary school teacher, parent volunteer and school board trustee, Angela transitioned from a life-long involvement with education to the role of a spiritual care provider. The training she received in Clinical Pastoral Education classes, coupled with her life experiences and her compassion for people made her a natural fit for the chaplaincy. In August of 2014, Angela began working as a Multi-Faith Chaplain at the Regina General Hospital.
Angela brings to the bedside of each person she visits compassion, empathy, and a genuine concern for their well-being. She is also available to spend time with patients’ family members, as well as hospital staff, when they are seeking guidance or when they just need a friendly face and a compassionate, listening ear.
“Thank you for your help – I don’t know what I would have done without you.” — Middle-aged male patient
“Mom appreciated your visits so much. She still talks about you.” — Daughter of an elderly patient
“Thanks so much! The visits and the prayers were awesome!!” — Young female patient
I strongly believe that all patients should have the option of being offered spiritual care, regardless of whether or not they have a connection to a faith community. – Angela Fraser
