Kindred Hospital Chapel

Only a few blocks away from my parish is Kindred Hospital, formerly known as St. Anthony Hospital. Evidently its origins are Catholic, at least. I have a feeling that they are still a Catholic organization, however, for a few reasons. There is an excellent description of their mission on their website, which seems very Catholic to me, and thank goodness the hospital is a speciality hospital for long-term care. That means no abortions, no contraception.

The coolest part of the hospital is their chapel. I knew it was around, but unfortunately I have not made the time to get there...

At one point the hospital chapel held celebrations of the traditional form of the Roman Rite. Wonderful. (This was nice, since there is no Mass in the older form on Mondays-and Saturdays-nowadays in Louisville.) Mass is celebrated during the week at 6 AM. There is Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament 6:30 PM-10 PM on Sundays and from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM during the week. If one would like more time in adoration, remember that two minutes up Broadway is St. Martin of Tours, the doors of which never close.

Sorry the picture's so fuzzy...the original photo is HERE.
