The University Chapel is located in Mercy Hall first floor. The chapel is open for private prayer during the day. Liturgy is held every Sunday evening at 7:00 pm in the University Chapel. On Tuesdays there is a 12:00 liturgy in the chapel.
Holy Hour/Sacred Silence is held monthly in the University chapel, normally the second Wednesday at noon.
Bible Study: Students meet once a week in Campus Ministry Center to read and reflect on different Bible passages and share how the word of God speaks to their lives.
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults): This is the process of initiation for adults seeking to learn about the Catholic faith or receive the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. This process is a commitment of two semesters for those entering the RCIA process.
Retreats: Retreat for Busy People is a one-on-one directed retreat on campus that is held every Spring Semester. The SEARCH weekend in February is a student led retreat that is held off campus. Life Choices Retreat held in the spring gives students discernment tools to recognize the movement of God's will in their life.
