The PeaceHealth Heritage Chapel, located on the 1st floor of the Mother Joseph building, is a sacred place open to all for meditation, prayer and healing of the mind and spirit. The chapel is always open.
Worship Services are provided for patients and families who wish to spend time in prayer and reflection during the time of their stay at a PeaceHealth Southwest facility.
A Sunday worship service is held at 10:00am in the PeaceHealth Heritage Chapel.
There is also a Chapel Service provided to the patients who are guests of Psychiatric Services II on the Memorial Campus.
The quiet peace of the Heritage Chapel pays tribute to PeaceHealth Southwest's history, more than 150 years of service to the Vancouver community.
