Spiritual Life

A community spirit does not just happen of itself. It flows from people who share a common tradition and strive for a common goal outside themselves. Preserve among yourselves a unity, peace, love and kindness. Practice toward one another gentleness, understanding and cooperation.    — Blessed Mary Angela


The Marywood Holy Family Chapel was dedicated on December 18, 2010 and is open to all denominations. Floor to ceiling windows provide sweeping views of Marywood's beautiful grounds and surround the altar cross, creating a "floating" and inspiring visual centerpiece. The stained glass feature adds a transcendental quality to the chapel, illuminating the room in hues of blue. Plans are underway to construct a memorial brick pathway.

Retired priests from Clergy Village provide spiritual support and direction as well as celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Sunday through Friday. Marywood's rich tradition continues as Felician Sisters offer prayer, support and words of encouragement as they visit residents and their families. Marywood's full-time Pastoral Care Supervisor visits residents and for those unable to attend regular services, bedside visits including Holy Communion are available.

It is a honor and grace to serve the residents of Marywood. Whether I am exchanging smiles, offering support and encouragement through shared conversation, prayers, or song, bringing bedside Holy Communion or holding the hand of the sick and the dying; I know I have touched the heart of Christ through the people I served today.
