HUNTLEY, Ill. (AP) _ Leaders of many faiths are set to participate in a ceremony to launch a chapel at a new hospital in northern Illinois.
The new Centegra Hospital in Huntley plans to hold a chapel blessing ceremony Monday. Hospital officials say leaders listed on the program represent Methodist, Catholic, Muslim, Community Church, Blue Lotus Temple and Lutheran faiths. Centegra chaplains also will participate.
