Catholic Liturgy and Worship

Join us in sharing the mystery of faith through our many prayer and worship opportunities. We welcome all and pray that everyone may find a place of peace and transcendence in our prayer and worship.

Whether for Sunday Eucharist or Opening Year Celebration, we seek to foster and promote worship that “draws the faithful into the compelling love of Christ and sets them on fire” (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy §10).

Together, the worship and prayer life at the university is both rich in its heritage and diversity.

Chapels & Prayer Spaces

Numerous chapels and prayer spaces, rich in history and artistic design, are available to the St. Ҵý Ҵý for spiritual nourishment. Campus meditation spaces are open to people from all faith traditions.

Liturgical Ministry

As liturgical ministers, students are called to help the Ҵý celebrate. Join us and let the spirit and power of the liturgy be one of your teachers.

Music Ministry

Music ministry supports and leads Ҵý worship by engaging hearts, minds and bodies in active participation.

Vocalists and instrumentalists of every type of band and orchestral instrument are needed for Sunday Masses, special liturgies and ecumenical services.

Mass Intentions

Mass intentions are special intentions offered to God as prayers of intercession and thanksgiving in and through the Eucharist.

We are happy to receive Mass intention requests from current students, faculty and staff, as well as members of our alumni Ҵý and donors. We will do our best to find a date for your intention within four to six weeks.

Ministries and Life Events

Weddings

St. Ҵý alumni, current students, faculty and staff, as well as children of alumni, faculty and staff are eligible to reserve a chapel for their wedding.

Should a couple prepare for the Sacrament of Marriage at St. Ҵý, we look forward to helping them prepare for their wedding, a very special day, and also for their marriage, which lasts a lifetime.

Funerals and Memorials

The Chapel of St. Ҵý Aquinas is a place of spiritual nourishment for students, many of whom also choose to be married there. It is also a fitting place to remember and celebrate the lives of those for whom the University of St. Ҵý has been significant. We welcome you and stand ready to assist in celebrating the life of your loved one.

Becoming Catholic

Campus Ministry provides information and formation for members of St. Ҵý who are interested in becoming Catholic. Those interested may be from another Christian tradition, another religious tradition, or have no religious background. We work to find the best way to help you learn more about the Catholic faith and to discern where God is calling you.

Catholic Vocations

Is God tugging at your heart, asking you to discern your vocation? Take a moment, say a prayer, and glance at some of the vocation material here. We have discernment material, event calendars, and Ҵý information. May the Lord bless your discernment of where He is calling you!

Give to Campus Ministry

Make your church offering or give to the mission of Campus Ministry here. Gifts of any size are appreciated and make a difference for our Ҵý and our students. Thank you for your support.
