SCCA Sanctuary

The Sanctuary is located on the first floor of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Clinic.

As a place of refuge for those who are hurting, the Sanctuary is a place of retreat while actions are being taken to help bring healing. It is a space that persons of all faiths and spiritualities can experience as warm, inviting and nurturing.

As a sacred space, the Sanctuary is a place where patients, families and staff can feel more connected to themselves, their traditions or the source of their spirituality. It is always open for quiet time, for prayer and meditation, and for reflection that can be vital to well-being and wholeness.


A Book of Prayers is located on the round common table where you can write prayers or prayer requests knowing that others will read what is written and join you in prayer.


You may take a blessing from a blessing bowl in the Sanctuary. Different blessings are written on small colorful pieces of paper.


Diverse spiritual resources are available for use by patients, families, and staff. These include sacred texts from diverse faith traditions, CareNotes, meditation and relaxation tapes, religious and relaxation music (available upon request), a prayer rug, a meditation pillow, Shabbat candles, head coverings, prayer beads and rosaries, prayer shawls, children’s books, Bibles, Guideposts and other resources.


Regular worship and meditation services are also held. Schedules are available in the Sanctuary.
