After eight months without a chapel, the Hospital Virgen del Castillo de Yecla once again has a sacred place of prayer in which to celebrate the Eucharist.
The chapel had to be closed last March, to locate the Covid-19 care room in that space.
Yesterday the new chapel was blessed, in another location of the hospital, by the vicar of the Cieza-Yecla Zone, Alfonso Alburquerque, accompanied by the archpriest and the two chaplains of this hospital.
"This chapel, which has the permanent presence of Jesus in the Sacrament in the Tabernacle, is called to be a meeting place with the Physician of our souls, with the One who offers in his mercy the necessary balm to alleviate our sufferings", explains the vicar.Albuquerque appreciates the support and interest of the hospital management and ensures that the opening of the chapel will benefit patients, their families and the staff of the medical center.
"Opening the chapel again is a reason for joy, in it the Holy Mass will be celebrated and it will be a place to pray and find the necessary strength in the midst of the ordeal of the illness of loved ones."
