Reminders

McLaren Greater Lansing Chapels offer quiet, private spaces

The McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital's commitment to spiritual care in every faith is reflected in its chapels. These chapels are silent spaces for prayer and meditation, no matter your religious faith or spiritual identity. The Greenlawn, or Ingham Chapel is fitted with worship symbols and holy scriptures from a variety of religious traditions. It is located on the first floor, between the visitor and patient entrances, opposite the Chi elevators. Look for the Office of Spiritual Care sign, above double doors that open into the chapel and spiritual care office.

On the Pennsylvania campus, just past the information desk (near the old main lobby) there is a smaller chapel.

Roman Catholics

Eucharistic ministers visit Catholic patients on the Greenlawn campus daily, offering Holy Communion, as does a Roman Catholic priest every Wednesday. Special or emergency requests for a priest (e.g., Anointing of the Sick) other days or times, or for patients at our Penn campus, can be made through unit staff or by calling the office of Spiritual Care at (517) 975-6010, or 56010 internally.

Send an E-Greeting

Cards will be delivered within 24 hours of receipt (Monday thru Friday 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. only).
