St Vincent's Hospital and Sacred Heart and have 3 chapels for staff and patients to visit for some quiet time, prayer and to celebrate the Eucharist.

The Xavier Chapel is located to the right of the Xavier foyer (the main entrance) of the Hospital and was designed to be used for worship by people of the many faiths and traditions who visit the Hospital. It has a modern feel and is consistent with the Sisters of Charity tradition to provide holistic health care.

The Garden Chapel is located within the grounds of Sacred Heart and was blessed and opened in 1899. Recently refurbished, this peaceful Chapel is open for services and, in certain circumstances, is available for funerals and other services. The Garden Chapel accommodates approximately 70 people.

Sacred Heart Chapel is located just on the right of the Sacred Heart Health Service building foyer and it is designed for reflection, prayer services and celebration of the Eucharist.
