Skylight, Sky Bright
by Trillium Hibbeln on 01/25/2010 at 12:35 PM

We recently celebrated a milestone in the building of the new Helen DeVos Children's Hospital: the installation of the chapel skylight.

On the 11th floor, which is dedicated to family amenities, there is going to be a beautiful circular non-denominational chapel. The 600-square-foot chapel is designed to give families a beautiful private space to reflect, pray and seek comfort.

The skylight for the chapel was hoisted up on a large crane in late November. We think the chapel will be a very special place for families during what can be difficult times and we hope families take comfort in the natural light from the sky above. The pastoral care department will be located near the chapel for consultation and resources as well.
