Since its beginning in 1889, there has been a chapel at Saint Marys Hospital. Money earned by the Sisters of St. Francis and gifts from individuals provided the basic funds for construction. Designed in the style of a basilica, the chapel is patterned after early Christian churches with two rows of granite pillars dividing the interior into a nave and two side aisles. The entire chapel structure seats more than 400 worshipers.
All are welcome to worship in Saint Marys Chapel. Masses are offered Monday through Saturday at 4:30 p.m. and Sunday at 8:30 a.m. An interdenominational service is held at 10:45 a.m. on Sunday. The services are telecast live to patient rooms on CCTV Channel 11. The chapel is always open for private prayer and reflection.
