Tom Frieberg, originally from Albany, NY, is a healthcare chaplain who lives in Vancouver, WA. He did his chaplaincy training at the Oregon State Hospital (a secure, inpatient psychiatric facility).

He has also volunteered and served on the staff of his parish, St. Andre Bessette Catholic Church, in downtown Portland.

Tom’s work in the parish's outreach ministry provided another opportunity to serve and learn from individuals living with mental illness. Those two ministries—Oregon State Hospital and Saint Andre Bessette -- informed and inspired this Stations of the Cross with Reflections on Mental Illness.

Tom is married and has two grown children, a daughter in law, and three grandchildren. He can be reached at
