Baby Blessings

As a sign of blessing and thanksgiving, it is a Mount Alvernia Hospital tradition to hold a short prayer service for parents and their little ones, just before they leave the hospital for home. Parents who would like to have their baby presented in the Chapel may contact ward staff for assistance to arrange for a suitable time for the blessing.

Franciscan Blessing
May the Lord bless you and keep you
May the Lord let His face shine on you and be gracious to you
May the Lord uncover His face to you and bring you peace
