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, held during the academic year.
You are welcome to our signature liturgies during the school year which include the Mass of the Holy Spirit, the Orientation Mass, and the December and 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. The following times are available:
Mondays: 11:30 am - 12:00 pm
Thursdays: 5:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Saturdays: 3:45 pm - 4:45 pm
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.
XALT is an opportunity to engage in contemporary Christian music with silent prayer, reflection, and exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. The XALT program invites guest speakers to share their reflections on a number of spiritual topics. All are welcome.
