Grounded in the Catholic and Ignatian tradition, Campus Ministry serves persons of all faiths. The office encourages students, faculty, and staff of JCU to integrate personal faith into the academic and social environment of the University. We value the University’s commitment to academic pursuits, and welcome the opportunities we have to bring a Catholic and Ignatian faith perspective to bear on issues and trends that may surface in various disciplines and in a variety of social milieus.
Liturgy and prayer give us life and challenge us to live our faith more deeply. Student participation is integral to the worship experience at John Carroll and is reflected in all of our liturgical celebrations. A committee consisting of students, priests, and campus ministry staff plan seasonal celebrations, prayer services, and special Masses. More than 100 students are involved in planning liturgies, and as sacristans, lectors, Eucharistic ministers, and altar servers. In addition to Mass on campus every day except Saturday, there are other opportunities to participate in Catholic devotions. If you are not a confirmed Catholic, you may also prepare for sacramental initiation through our RCIA program.
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. There are no Masses on campus during Spring Break or Easter Break. Our last Sunday Masses for the semester are after classes are over. During the Summer Break there are no regularly scheduled Masses on campus. The normal schedule resumes when students return in August. Mass times on Sunday are 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. in Saint Francis Chapel.
