To help meet your spiritual and emotional needs, Lowell General provides chaplains Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:30 pm. Our chaplains work closely with nurses, physicians, social workers and others involved in patient care. They provide supportive counseling and care to patients, families and staff who are emotionally distressed, struggling with religious/spiritual/ethical issues or who are requesting a specific religious rite or ritual. A person’s spirituality is often what patients rely upon and use to help them cope with their illness or suffering. The chaplain is available to provide objective crisis intervention and competent spiritual support.
Members of the clergy may visit patients at any hour. Patients who would like a visit from their own clergy should contact the parish directly. The Sacrament of Communion is distributed daily to Catholic patients who would like to receive it and the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is available in emergency situations.
The Lowell General main campus Chapel and Meditation Room is located on the first floor in the Hanchett Building. The Lowell General Saints campus Chapel is located on the second floor in the Reilly Building. The chapel is open 6:30 am to 8:00 pm to patients and visitors for quiet meditation and prayer. Mass is offered at the Lowell General Saints campus Monday through Friday at noontime. It is also televised at our Lowell General Saints campus in all patient rooms on closed circuit television on Channel 15.
