Mass Schedule

 

Spring 2022 Schedule

Changes have been made to the spring 2022 Mass schedule. Our intent is to maintain and improve accessibility for student schedules while also being mindful of our student and Jesuit ministerial resources. The new times are as follows:

  • Weekday Daily Mass: 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  • Evening Mass on Tuesday and Thursday: 8:30 p.m., confessions beforehand at 8 p.m.
  • Eucharistic Adoration (with confessions): 8 p.m. Wednesday
  • Sunday Mass: 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. (no Sat. Masses)
These changes have been made in response to student feedback, and in order to continue to build a vibrant worshipping community for the campus. If you have questions, please see Fr. Mac.

 

Liturgical Ministries

Liturgical Ministries

Students from all class years have the opportunity to serve as Altar Servers, Ushers, Eucharistic Ministers, Readers/Lectors, and Sacristans at all of our liturgies.

Liturgical Ministries Program

All Readers, Eucharistic Ministers, Altar Servers, Ushers, and Sacristans are members of our Liturgical Ministry program. In the fall and spring, students apply and interview to join our program. All students in the program meet every other week during the school year for ongoing spiritual formation and community building. These meetings enrich their spiritual lives with discussions and speakers in the area of faith, justice and morality, introduce them to different kinds of prayer, build community, and offer opportunities to participate in service projects.

Our training includes theological overviews of ministry and the Eucharist, as well as in-depth explanations of the parts of the Mass and their specific liturgical roles. New ministers are assigned mentors to guide them through their training. Anybody interested in joining the program should reach out to our Director of Music and Liturgy, Andrew Mountin.

All students involved in Liturgical and Music Ministries have the opportunity to attend combined retreats in the fall (overnight) and spring (single-day).

Music Ministry

We are always seeking new choir members, cantors, and instrumentalists to help lead the music at our Masses! Student musicians assist in providing music at all of our Sunday (11:00, 5:00, and 9:00) and weeknight (Thursday, 8:30 p.m.) liturgies, as well as on Holy Days or other major occasions. Choirs and ensembles rehearse during the week and on Sunday the hour immediately prior to Mass.

Cantor Program

Students interested in serving as cantors should reach out to our Director of Music and Liturgy, Andrew Mountin. Each Sunday Mass usually has two student cantors who work in tandem. All of our cantors rotate through Mass times and roles in order to get as well rounded an experience as possible. Cantors who are assigned for a given Sunday are expected to meet with Andrew for a 30-45 minute prep session in the week before they lead. As participants in the cantor program, students have the opportunity to receive monthly voice lessons, cantor formation, and instruction in basic choral conducting technique.

Choirs

Beginning with the 2021-2022 academic year, our choirs are taking a new approach to how we form. This year we are beginning a process of holding a single shared rehearsal, learning music of various styles alongside one another. Each student choir members can determine a “primary” Mass that they wish to sing for– but are always welcome to join their choir peers at another Mass whenever they wish to! If you wish to join a choir, speak to one of our music ministers or Andrew after Mass, or just show up to our weekly rehearsal – 8:00 PM on Monday nights in the chapel!

Instrumentalists

We are always seeking instrumentalists to strengthen our ensembles at each Mass. Pianists/organists, guitarists, percussionists, and solo instrumentalists (flute, violin, cello, saxophone, trumpet, etc.) are all welcome! Instrumentalists are encouraged to attend rehearsal with the choir at 8 p.m. on Monday nights, but instrumental ensembles generally each have their own rehearsal time later in the week. Similar to our choir members, if you wish to serve as an instrumentalist, speak to one of our music ministers or Andrew after Mass, or just show up to our weekly rehearsal.
