Mennonite Village chaplains seek to supplement and support the ministry of local churches and ministers, and to encourage the spiritual life of each resident, regardless of his or her religious affiliation or beliefs. Good Shepherd volunteers are trained and supervised by our chaplains and are also available for visits with our residents. See Schedule of Services.
