Spiritual Care Services

At St. Mary Medical Center, we believe that the spiritual dimension of each person is a vital part of meeting the healthcare needs of the whole person - body, mind and spirit.

Warmth, compassion and genuine concern for each individual is a hallmark of the Spiritual Healthcare team at St. Mary Medical Center Long Beach. Our Spiritual Care Services are available to all patients, their families and caregivers to provide comfort in times of doubt or need.


The Chapel and the Spiritual Care Services office is located on the first floor of the hospital in the West Wing. The Chapel is open daily from 6:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. and a daily morning prayer can be heard over the public address system at 8:30 a.m.

Mass Schedule
Sundays: 10:00 a.m.
Weekdays: 11:30 a.m.

Members of our Spiritual Care Services department make rounds on the floors each day. If you'd like to request a visit with a priest, sister or chaplain, please contact our Spiritual Care Department at extension 3675 and they will be happy to assist you. For emergencies, please have the nurse call or dial "O" for the operator, who will page a chaplain.

Spiritual Care Services can be contacted from outside the hospital at (562) 491-9675.
