Baby Blessings

We believe that a baby is a blessing, a gift from heaven and a precious little angel.

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 leaving the hospital for home. The baby blessing is available for every newborn regardless of race, nationality or religion.

Parents who like to have their baby presented in the Chapel may contact ward staff for assistance to arrange a suitable time for the blessing.
