Gwynedd Mercy University’s Campus Ministry offers a variety of retreats and faith-sharing opportunities throughout the year to support the spiritual development of the entire GMercyU community.
Our goal is to help the GMercyU community pause to engage questions of significance and to pray and reflect on your personal experiences in the pursuit of lives of deep meaning.
Our vision of Campus Ministry calls us to celebrate the Catholic/Christian faith of our sponsors, the Sisters of Mercy, and to encourage others to live their faith more fully. Our desire is that people who engage our liturgy and worship experiences – especially over time – will seek an active and meaningful relationship with God, giving witness to Gospel values and the charism of Mercy.
To facilitate this relationship, we offer a variety of Catholic, ecumenical and interfaith prayer experiences throughout the year.
The Eucharistic Celebration (Mass) is a concrete expression of our identity as a Catholic, Mercy institution. Our goal is that the Mass can be a fruitful experience of God's unconditional love and grace for all who attend.
Masses will take place Sundays at 6:30pm in the Glass Lounge of the Triplex and Wednesdays at 1:15pm in the University Chapel at Campbell Hall.
All are welcome to participate in Mass.
In-person, on-campus prayer services will be held throughout the year on a variety of different topics. These opportunities will be livestreamed through social media. Please follow our Instagram (@gmercyuministry) or our Facebook Page (Gwynedd Mercy University Campus Ministry) for the date, time, and location of each prayer! Contact Jeff Wallace (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or comments.
The Gwynedd Mercy University campus community offers special prayer opportunites to celebrate our Catholic, Mercy identity.
We encourage students, faculty, and staff to get involved in our liturgical celebrations as singers, musicians, lectures, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and leaders of prayer. Interested? Contact Jeff Wallace, director of Campus Ministry, at email@example.com or 215-641-5590.
First-year students are invited to participate in the First-Year Retreat! This on-campus experience will help first year students (transfers and freshman) start their journey at GMercyU on the right foot. You can register here (Microsoft Forms) or find us on GriffinEngage under "Campus Ministry." For more information, contact Jeff Wallace at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Griffins are invited to "break through" the murky, mundane mayhem of every day and come away for an awesome weekend retreat sponsored by Campus Ministry. The retreat is planned and facilitated by students and designed for you to reflect on your life amongst old and new friends. There will be time for individual reflection, group conversations, fun community building activities, and opportunities for free time.
Interested students can contact Jeff Wallace for more information.
Gwynedd Mercy University respects the faith traditions of all of our students.
We are pleased to offer students who wish to practice their own religion or spirituality a space for prayer, meditation, or any other form of spiritual expression. Interested students can find this space on the second floor of Visitation House. For more information, contact Jeff Wallace at email@example.com.
Campus Ministry is offering a monthly opportunity for Interfaith Meditation in the Common Prayer Space, located on the 2nd floor of Visitation House. Interfaith Meditation is an opportunity for those with different worldviews and faith backgrounds to gather and share in a moment of quiet prayer together. The prayer will be led by Director of Campus Ministry, Jeff Wallace.
For questions, comments, or concerns, please reach out to Jeff directly (Wallace.firstname.lastname@example.org)

Gwynedd Mercy University provides time away to students for specific Catholic/Christian religious holidays, such as Christmas, Holy Thursday, and Good Friday. However, the GMercyU campus community is comprised of diverse religious and spiritual backgrounds that have unique observances and holidays. University policy permits undergraduate and graduate students to observe religious holidays that conflict with the academic schedule without penalty (UG Couse Catalogue, pg. 5; Grad. Course Catalogue, pg. 4).
Therefore, Campus Ministry and the Division of Mission Integration provides this list of religious observances and holidays for the benefit of the campus community. The hope is that faculty, staff, and administrators will use this list as a reference. This list is not completely inclusive of all religious holidays. To offer suggestions or include religious observances or holidays not included in this list, please contact Jeff Wallace at Wallace.email@example.com. For further questions or concerns, please contact Tatiana Diaz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
