Mercy Hospital was founded in 1852 by the Sisters of Mercy to bring healing to the poor, sick and uneducated. Delivering comfort and spiritual support to those in need remains central to our mission today, and Spiritual Care is an integral part of our health care delivery. On site 24 hours a day, the Mercy Spiritual Care team is available to listen and comfort. Our Spiritual Care staff offers Sacraments, spiritual counseling, grief counseling, and assistance with Advance Directives.
We know that hospitalization and illness can be difficult for patients and families, and so Mercy’s Spiritual Care staff is here to provide prayer, counseling and support for patients and their loved ones in their time of need.
Mercy’s chapel is open 24 hours a day, and all are welcome to pray, visit or find comfort and solitude in this beautiful place. The chapel is conveniently located on the second floor of the hospital. Mass is celebrated at the following times: Sunday 7:30 a.m., Monday through Friday at 7:30 a.m., and Saturday at 4 p.m.
