Spiritual Life at Luther Ridge

Our Chaplain
The Rev. Dr. Paul Krampitz, Pastor of Bethany Lutheran Church, Cromwell serves as our part-time chaplain at Luther Ridge. Pastor Paul is available help residents and staff with all of their spiritual needs. He is onsite five hours per week and can be reached at 860.347.7144, ext. 104. Individual appointments are available, and all conversations are confidential.

Our Worship Life
Each Sunday a Service of Holy Communion is held in our chapel at 2 pm. People from all denominations are welcome. Pastor Paul maintains a schedule of  Lutheran pastors who volunteer to preach and preside at this service. Mr. William Hively, organist and choir director at First Lutheran Church of the Reformation in New Britain, provides beautiful and inspiring worship music.

The first Friday of every month a Roman Catholic Mass is offered by a local Roman Catholic priest followed by an opportunity to pray the Rosary. Relatives and friends of our residents are invited and encouraged to attend all regularly scheduled worship services, as well as memorial services and other occasional services.  

Our Life Together
Pastor Paul leads a bible study group each Wednesday beginning at 10:30 am. This group enjoys fellowship and provides an opportunity for mutual support as we share about what’s happening in our lives and discuss the scripture readings that will be heard in our upcoming Sunday worship service. All are welcome to join us -- no bible study experience is necessary to join in this time of prayerful conversation.
