Our Chapel

Our chapel at Lahey is a peaceful, quiet place open to patients, families, visitors and staff. It is accessible 24 hours a day and is located next to the auditorium off of the fourth-floor main lobby. We celebrate Catholic Mass Monday through Wednesday at noon, and there is a Catholic Communion service Thursdays and Fridays at noon. Everyone is welcome at the chapel.
