Hospital Chaplaincy

Iowa District East has a University of Iowa Hospital Chaplain who is able to visit your parishioners. Please contact Rev. Musick if you are not able to make it to Iowa City to visit your parishioners.


Support the University of Iowa Hospital Chaplain


You can donate to the Hospital Chaplaincy in two ways:


Hospital Chaplaincy Fund: The Hospital Chaplaincy Fund is used directly supporting current operating expenses of the Hospital Chaplain. As of January 2015, Chaplain Musick is visiting the hospital five half days a week. Please make donation to Iowa District East and designate to the Hospital Chaplaincy Fund by writing “Hospital Chaplaincy” in the memo line.


Chaplaincy Endowment Fund: Interest earnings go towards supporting the chaplaincy at the University of Iowa Hospitals. The Chaplaincy Endowment fund has surpassed $500,000, meaning interest can now be withdrawn in support of the chaplaincy. All gifts for the endowment fund build the principle balance and continue supporting the goal of having a full time chaplain at University Hospitals. Please make donations to Iowa District East and designate to the Chaplaincy Endowment by sending a check to the address listed below and writing “Chaplaincy Endowment Fund” in the memo line.


All checks can be mailed to:

Iowa District East
1100 Blairs Ferry Rd
Marion, IA  52302
