Several West Houston clergy members of various faiths joined Mark A. Wallace, president and CEO of Texas Children’s Hospital, and Texas Children’s chaplains for a spiritual dedication of the new interfaith chapel at Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus, Houston’s first community hospital designed, built and equipped exclusively for children.
The clergy members who offered interfaith blessings included Rabbi Roy A. Walter, Congregation Emanu El; Imam Hamed Ghazaly, Ph.D., Houston Quran Academy; Father Eugene Cagoco, Catholic Chaplain Corps and Rev. Dr. Paul Clines, First United Methodist, Westchase Campus. Following their blessings, Texas Children’s chaplains offered prayers on behalf of children who submitted their requests and intentions on prayer cards.
The interfaith chapel is located in the atrium that connects the outpatient and inpatient wings at West Campus. A quiet place where patients, staff and visitors of all faiths can go to pray, meditate and reflect in a calming and peaceful environment, the chapel design incorporates soothing colors and stained glass windows embossed with circles that reflect the circular design themes and child-like elements appearing throughout the pediatric hospital.
