LuMinHoS Calls new Chaplain

Phone: (306) 229-1663
The LuMinHoS Board of Directors is pleased to announce the acceptance of Call by Rev. Richard Engel to serve as the LuMinHoS Chaplain.

Rev. Engel comes to Saskatoon after completing a contract serving 6 parishes in the Brokenhead, Manitoba area. He and his wife Phyllis settled into Saskatoon.   They have three children:  Warren, who will be 12 years old; Meagan, 18 years old and who just graduated; and Maverick, who is 22.

Rev. Engel was installed to the position of Chaplain following the LuMinHoS AGM on Sunday, August 30.  He begins serving patients in the Saskatoon hospitals on September 1, 2020.

Following Pastor Ron Bestvater’s resignation in January to serve Zion, Saskatoon, Pastor Michael Diegel served as the interim chaplain from March to August 31.  The Board expresses its sincere appreciation to Pastor Michael for his service to LuMinHoS especially during the COVID-19 pandemic and its many challenges.

May God bless Chaplain Richard as he starts this new ministry and a new chapter in LuMinHoS’s life.  Please remember LuMinHoS in your prayers.
