McLaren Greater Lansing Chapels offer quiet, private spaces

The McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital’s commitment to spiritual care in every faith is reflected in our chapel. The Sacred Space chapel is a silent space for prayer and meditation, no matter your religious faith or spiritual identity. The chapel is fitted with worship symbols and holy scriptures from a variety of religious traditions. Prayer stalls for Islamic prayer are in a designated area that faces east. A larger sanctuary is for other prayer and group use. The Chapel is located on the first floor, off the main lobby in the Outpatient Care Center. Look for the Sacred Space sign.
