Ottawa, Ill. -- St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Ottawa has a new chaplain. Father Michael Driscoll was at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.
Five days a week, he’ll visit patients and their families by request. He says he’ll offer spiritual guidance without regard to what denomination someone is from.
Father Driscoll isn’t totally new to the area. He has served as a priest at St. Columba Church in Ottawa in 1985 and at St. Theresa in Earlville from 1999 to 2001.
