Volunteers needed for visits to Antelope Valley Hospital

LANCASTER — Antelope Valley Hos­pit­al is looking for volunteer chaplains to address patients’ spiritual needs or to serve through intercessory prayer Monday through Friday.

The Antelope Valley Press welcomes contributions to its Religion Bulletin Board. Announcements are published as a public service; items are run as space allows and priority is given to entries that have not yet run in the newspaper.

Entries are limited to special events, as opposed to routine services and meetings in the church. Written press releases are required, including the name of the church or organization; the time, date and place of the event; cost, if any; and a telephone number, email address and/or web address the public can contact for details.

Send press releases to Religion Editor, Antelope Valley Press, P.O. Box 4050, Palmdale, CA 93590-4050; fax them to 661-947-4870; email them to; or drop them by the Valley Press office, 37404 Sierra Highway in Palmdale. Releases need to be received no later than noon on the Wednesday a week prior to the event, since the bulletin board runs only in the Saturday Religion section.

For answers to questions about submissions, call 661-267-4163.
