Rush offers a variety of convenient services to help make your stay easier and more comfortable for you and your family.

Chapel/Pastoral Services and Spiritual Support

The J. Hall Taylor Memorial Chapel — located on the first floor of the Kellogg Building near elevator C — is open 24 hours a day. For a schedule of services and information about special events or to see a chaplain, call ext 2-5571.

Episcopal Mass is offered on Sundays at 9 a.m. Roman Catholic Mass is offered on Sundays at 5 p.m. These services also are broadcast to all patient rooms on channel 15. Jumuah Prayers are offered in the Armour Academic Center on Fridays at 1 p.m. Please call the Department of Religion, Health and Human Values at (312) 942-5571 for the location.

Chaplains at Rush include a Roman Catholic priest, an imam and a rabbi, as well as clergy representing a variety of other denominations. None of our chaplains, however, works exclusively with one faith group. They serve everyone and help people access the resources of their own spirituality or religious tradition in the process of healing.

For information on these and other services or to see a chaplain, call ext. 2-5571 or have the on-call chaplain paged at 85-7151.
