We believe that each person is a unique blend of body, mind and spirit -- always worthy of respect and care. Our chaplains are available to guests and family as a good listener to offer spiritual and emotional support. They will accompany those in crisis or grief, share prayer, lead worship and help create other appropriate rituals. The chaplain will also help communicate with your local clergy and help you transition into recovery.
A Chapel is provided in each location as a place of quiet sanctuary for guests and visitors to nourish their spirits and nurture their relationships with the Divine. Both Chapels are located near the cafeteria/café and are open around the clock.
To talk to a Chaplain by phone call 317-583-5059 or request by email attention email@example.com
