Banff Mineral Springs Hospital Chapel needs your assistance: The chapel suffered water damage this past year due to leaking sky lights and an abundance of rain. The chapel is an integral part of the healing that happens at the hospital, facilitating the delivery of spiritual care to residents, patients, staff and visitors.

Please help by donating your pennies or change to the chapel renovation project.  Your pennies are valueless after February 2013; however they are priceless to the Banff Mineral Springs Hospital by contributing to this important project.  Consider setting them aside and bringing them to the hospital to fill our change jars or call and we will collect them for you.
