We provide soulful focus and guidance.
MPTF proudly supports all spiritual and religious traditions through extensive resources to fit the preferences and needs of the entire MPTF community. We offer worship services for multiple denominations including special holy day services for residents on campus. We also offer a sacred space for prayer and reflection John Ford Chapel, which was dedicated on our campus in 1967.
OFFERING SPIRITUAL HEALTH, BALANCE, AND AID
Represented by the Leonard Nimoy Palliative Care Chaplain, Rabbi Arthur Rosenberg, and Chaplain Dina Kuperstock, we provide spiritual guidance for our campus residents day to day and in times of need including 24-hour access to our chapel. Entertainment industry members know all about the importance of story, and our spiritual care services are here to help residents and their families continue to weave meaning and connection into the stories of their lives. We also provide spiritual support to industry members off campus through our Palliative Care program.
“We welcome people of all backgrounds and faiths.”

We have also held wedding ceremonies for residents who met and wanted to tie the knot right here at MPTF.
