The Mater chapel is located on the ground floor near the main entrance. Open to all patients and visitors, the chapel offers a place of quiet for reflection, prayer and comfort. You are most welcome to visit the Chapel at any time day or night.

Mass is celebrated from Tuesday to Sunday in the Mater’s Chapel and, subject to change, is televised throughout the hospital on channel eight.

Mass times*

Tuesday to Friday 9.30am
Saturday 5.30pm
Sunday 10.00am

A Catholic chaplain is available to patients, families and staff and sacrament of the sick and reconciliation are available through pastoral services.

Visiting Chaplains

Although a distinctly Catholic organisation, our mission is the care of all patients. With this in mind the pastoral care team has contacts for all local churches, temples and synagogues. In addition, chaplains from various faith traditions and denominations regularly visit the Mater. These chaplains are officially endorsed and considered integral to the work of the pastoral care team. Visits can be arranged by contacting your pastoral carer. If you choose, your own minister, priest, rabbi or spiritual advisor is welcome to visit you.

* Mass schedules are subject to change. For information contact Pastoral Care or see the notice board outside the Chapel.
