about Pat Cooper
clergy

Hi, my name is Pat. I serve the terminally ill as a Hospice chaplain. I have devoted my life to caring for the needs of those who live in the shadow of death to bring hope where often it seems there is none. I am an ordained minister having served in a pastoral capacity for 28 years before beginning my current work in hospice. Presently, I am the Director of Chaplains for Cornerstone Hospice Care LLC serving in the Greater Dallas, Texas area. I completed my academic studies receiving the Ph.D. in Theology in 2014. I love to write inspirationally and maintain a blog site titled, "Just Thinkin'" at patrickacooper.com.
