Liturgy, Sacraments & Prayer

Welcome to All

Students, faculty, staff and community members of all faith identities are invited to participate in the celebration of the Eucharist. Please join us when you can — you do not need to be Catholic!

Mass Schedule during the Academic Year:

  • Sunday Mornings: 8:30 a.m. in the Sister's Chapel at Sacred Heart (year-round)
  • Sunday Evenings: 8:30 p.m. in the Chapel of Mercy (during the academic year)
  • Daily Mass (except Wednesday, Saturday and Holy Days): 11:45 a.m. in the Chapel of Mercy
  • Wednesday Evenings: 8:30 p.m. (during the acedmic year) Generally on-campus, location varies.

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.
