FAITH-BASED CARE

The Christian/Mennonite values of our Society are expressed daily through the attitudes and actions of staff, and in the work of our chaplains who attend to residents’ spiritual needs and coordinate ministry from churches in the community. Residents of other faiths (or no faith affiliation) are respected and supported as well.

Our campus includes chapels at Menno Hospital and Menno Home, meeting rooms for Bible studies, and a closed-circuit TV system that allows chapel services, music programs and special events to be viewed in every lounge and resident room.

The motivating faith of MBS is summed up in two themes found in Titus 3:8… “trusting in God” and “devoted to good works.”

Our Faith Connections

The Mennonite Benevolent Society and its facilities are part of a network of over 50 Mennonite-related healthcare organizations across Canada. Our annual conference, called the Canadian Mennonite Health Assembly (CMHA) rotates among several provinces and regions.

Our Society is also a founding member of the Denominational Health Association, formed in 1995 to strengthen understanding and cooperation between faith-based healthcare facilities and the provincial government. DHA members—including Anglican, Baptist, Hope Reform, Jewish, Lutheran, Mennonite, Pentecostal, Plymouth Brethren, Roman Catholic, Seventh Day Adventist and United Church facilities—represent over 6,000 beds with a combined annual operating budget of more than $1 billion. More information is available at Denominational Health Association website.
