As a Catholic, Jesuit University, we gather to celebrate the Eucharist, the central expression of our faith. We gather as a community to celebrate the Church's sacraments, and to mark significant moments in the life of this university.
Join the university community for our weekly 8pm Student Liturgy at St. Ignatius Church, located on campus. Student liturgies are held during the academic year.
The St. Ignatius Institute practices mass most Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm in the University Ministry Office. All are welcome to attend this more intimate mass setting.
You are welcome to participate in our signature liturgies during the school year which include the Mass of the Holy Spirit, Orientation Mass, and the December & May Commencement Masses. For information on liturgies in Saint Ignatius Church, click here.
All members of the University are invited and encouraged to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. For reconciliation times, please check here.
We will be celebrating various seasonal programs such as the Feast of St. Ignatius, Stations of the Cross, Lessons & Carols, and Xalt.
All members of the University are invited and encouraged to participate as fully as possible in USF's liturgical life by serving in specific liturgical ministries:
Lectors or readers are called forth from the community to proclaim the Word of God.
Eucharistic Ministers are called forth from the community to distribute the Body and Blood of Christ to the faithful.
Greeters or Ministers of Hospitality help to create a welcoming environment at Mass for all those who come to worship.
Music Ministers help to lead the community in song with their voices and / or instrumental abilities.
Liturgical Planners take an active role in planning liturgical celebrations and respond to the community's spirit and needs.
