These are trying times for medical workers on the frontlines of the coronavirus crisis. It is unlike any we’ve experienced before in our lives.

There to help medical personnel through are the chaplains – priests who confront this pandemic to make sure the healthcare heroes are spiritually supported. 

They’re still looking to bring God and the faith to people who are exhausted by caring for the sick.  

This ministry also extends to families of patients, who can’t visit their loved ones for safety reasons. 

One of those chaplains, Father Radu Titonea, from Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Forest Hills, Queens, joins Currents News to share what the day-to-day activities are like at this time.
