Clergy members of several faiths will help dedicate the new interfaith chapel at Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus on June 30.

They’ll join Mark A. Wallace, TCH’s president and CEO, and Pam Taylor, Texas Children’s senior chaplain, for the ceremony, which includes religious blessings from the Jewish, Protestant, Catholic and Islamic faiths and a “Tree of Hope.”

After the dedication, the tree will hold prayer cards listing requests and intentions raised by children.

Clergy expected to attend are:

Enrique Contreras, chaplain, Texas Children’s Hospital

Rabbi Roy W. Walter, Congregation Emanu El

Imam Hamed Ghazaly, Ph.D., Houston Quran Academy

Father Eugene Cagoco, Catholic Chaplain Corps

Paul Clines, First United Methodist, Westchase Campus

The chapel is intended as a place where patients, staff and visitors of all faiths can go to pray, meditate and reflect in a calming and peaceful environment.
