Built in 1953 as a free-standing chapel, the Interfaith Chapel at the Brockton Campus of VABHS remains its own building with seating for 120 in the chapel and offices for the chaplains. Aside from removing some pews in the 1980s to make the space more handicapped accessible, little has changed about the chapel since it was constructed.
A small Catholic chapel sits to the side of the larger chapel space, which is open from 8:30-4pm daily for visitors. Catholic mass takes place daily and Protestant services on Sundays. Protestant and Catholic crosses can be hung at the front of the larger chapel and there is space for a Torah behind the altar when needed for Jewish services. Memorial services for Veterans can be held in the chapel though it is more often used for moments of quiet reflection.
Chaplains from a range of religious and spiritual backgrounds serve patients at the VA who are there for short and long-term care as well as rehabilitation, mental health care and primary care.
