Pastoral Services at DECH

Down East Community Hospital’s beautiful interfaith Chapel is open 24 hours a day for prayer and meditation. Occasional worship services are held for patients, families, hospital employees, and residents of the Maine Veteran’s Home.

Supported by funds raised from the community, the Chapel opened in December 2007. Lovely hand-made pews and the Clifford E. Pennell Memorial Stained Glass Window crafted by local artisan, Mark Wrenn, create a soothing and spiritual space for comfort and healing.
