Worship renews our spiritual strength to face new challenges ahead. Eucharist brings us together in community so that we can say thanks to God, listen to his Word, open ourselves to the gift of love and forgiveness and receive the body and blood of the risen Lord.
Mass at Mount Mercy is a community event. Students are actively involved in the pews, as well as by carrying out several liturgical ministries. They serve as lectors, ministers of Holy Communion, greeters and musicians. Being a liturgical minister is a great way to share the gifts that God has given to you and at the same time a way to participate more fully in the Mass than ever before.
After Sunday evening Masses, the celebration continues with a social gathering in the Campus Ministry lounge. There are always refreshments to keep the socializing going.
Reconciliation (Celebration of Penance/Confession): before or after Masses or by appointment by calling 319-363-1323 ext. 1848.
