Mass is held on campus Sunday through Friday during the academic year.

Mass times change occasionally based on the academic schedule and other events on campus. A basic rule of thumb is that there are no Masses on campus when the university is not in session. Mass times on Sunday are 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. in Saint Francis Chapel.

In beginning your time at John Carroll, seize the opportunity to deepen your sense of community and spirituality!  Spend time off campus reflecting on your faith and building relationships with other first-year students. Upper class students will facilitate large and small group sessions and prayer/reflection experiences. There will also be ample time for community-building activities and getting to know each other.

This retreat is rooted in and introduces students to Ignatian spirituality, especially the Principle & Foundation, found in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. When St. Ignatius arrived in Manresa, Spain, he experienced a time of great reflection on his life, his limitations, and his love for God. This retreat is open to students of all faith backgrounds; NO prior retreat experience is required. The retreat is led by a diverse team of students and offers large and small group experiences, group building activities, times of individual prayer reflection, communal prayer experiences, and free time.

Carroll Faith Communities (CFCs) are small faith communities grounded in spirituality and community. They are a safe place to reverence the individual experiences that bind us together. Groups consist of 8-10 members who gather weekly for faith-filled conversations, prayer, and reflection as they seek to integrate their faith with the realities of everyday life.
