Spiritual Life

Spiritual life at Salina Presbyterian Manor affords residents countless opportunities to worship and practice their faith. Our full-time chaplain, Mary Bridges, welcomes each new resident with a personal visit and a small handmade heart.

Our beautiful chapel hosts a variety of worship services throughout the week.

Non-denominational services are held every Sunday at 3 p.m. Services are led by clergy from throughout the Salina area who participate on a rotating basis. Mary leads worship the first, third and fifth Sundays. Visiting clergy and lay leaders share worship on the second and fourth Sundays.

A Bible study group from the Salina community meets every Thursday at 1:30 p.m. in the conference room. The group is not affiliated with any church, and Presbyterian Manor residents are invited to attend.

In addition to regular weekly worship services, we hold an annual memorial service as well as a number of other special services around the Christmas and Lenten seasons.

A Stitch-and-Pray group meets in the chapel every Thursday at 3 p.m. to craft prayer squares, shawls and comfort pillows, giving them to people who are ill or grieving. Stitch and Pray often provides outreach to the community. We also offer grief support, and Care and Share services.
