The Guadalupe Regional Medical Center chose St. Brigid’s Cross for the chapel feeling that any chaplain would do well to model their ministry after the life of St. Brigid. Much like St. Brigid, the chaplain often finds that the most sacred “chapel” is at the bedside of the sick and dying. In those holy moments it is always the chaplain’s desire to bring love, peace and comfort through prayer and faith. In the manner of St. Brigid, Chaplains often share God’s love by reaching out to the poor, to those in need and to those whose hearts are hurting.

This is so beautiful; must visit the hospital to see it.
We are so fortunate to be gifted with Marika’s beautiful sculptures.
Thank you Hope. The chapel is just magnificent and they have materials and photographs of the opening event. Check out the Community Art Wall down the hallway from the chapel. Sylvia Benitez may still have her work there. It is beautiful.
All the best,
