Spiritual Life

Life at Topeka Presbyterian Manor affords residents various opportunities to practice their faith and have an active spiritual life. Our chaplain, Rev. Roger Cook, makes it a point to personally welcome each new resident and share with them the worship and spiritual life activities available here as well as affording his personal availability to them as a friend.

Our campus is blessed with the beautiful Jellison Chapel, which provides a wonderful setting for our weekly residential community worship service. The chapel is an equally tranquil environment to engage in personal reflection and meditation and has hosted small weddings, funerals, memorial services and other special events.

Worship however they choose

In addition to the weekly residential community worship service, other interdenominational activities are available throughout the week, including:

  • Weekly services in our Cedar View and Sunflower healthcare communities
  • Sunday afternoon Vespers’ in our Sunflower healthcare chapel/activity room with 3 dedicated groups of local church volunteers and our own chaplain providing music and encouragement
  • Weekly Bible Study in our apartment community
  • Regular religious videos and spiritual music in our healthcare neighborhoods

In compliment to our interdenominational services, Most Pure Heart of Mary Roman Catholic Church under the organizational leadership of Sister Ann Moylan, Minister to the Sick and Aged, provides services to our Catholic residents:

  • Weekly Rosary in both our healthcare & residential settings
  • Room-to-room Communion throughout the campus
  • Monthly Mass for all residents in our Sunflower chapel/activity room

Along with these regularly scheduled events, our updated monthly and weekly calendars include a schedule of any additional services and activities such as guest musicians, choirs, and much more.
