January 28, 1960, Richard Cardinal Cushing of the Archdiocese of Boston,
dedicated the opening of U.S.A.'s first Catholic Chapel in a shopping mall at
the Northshore Mall in Peabody, Massachusetts. The original mission of the St.
Therese Carmelite Chapel was, and continues to be, to provide a convenient
opportunity to discover peace of mind, heart and soul in the midst of our fast
paced, high stress lives.
Order of Carmelites provided the sacramental and spiritual services to its
congregation until February 1, 2016 when the transition was made to the
Carmelites of Mary Immaculate founded in 1931 by Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara
of India. The C. M. I. s have grown rapidly since their inception with
ministries now in 32 countries and many states from Massachusetts to
more than half a century, the Chapel has offered daily opportunities to attend
Holy Masses, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Exposition of the Blessed
Sacrament, Anointing of the Sick, Spiritual Direction and as much quiet time
for serenity and spiritual enrichment as your heart, mind and soul desire. Next
to our Chapel (Lower Level-Entrance next to Not Your Average Joe's Restaurant)
is our Catholic Gift Shop where you can purchase religious gifts, books, etc.
and request Masses to be said for your loved ones.
