Liturgy & Worship

You are here

Our vision of Campus Ministry calls us to celebrate the Catholic/Christian faith of our sponsors, the Sisters of Mercy, and to encourage all to live their faith more fully.  To that end we offer a variety of Catholic, ecumenical, and interfaith prayer experiences throughout the year.  See our News and Events page for upcoming opportunities.  As members of the community engage our liturgy and worship experiences--especially over time--they seek an active and meaningful relationship with God, giving witness to Gospel values and the charism of Mercy. 

Please note that our schedule of services is in effect when school is in session during the fall and spring semesters.  See below for a list of local houses of worship.
