Campus Liturgies

Liturgy

Campus Liturgies

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.


Liturgies and Mass Schedules

Join the university community for our weekly 8pm Student Liturgy in St. Ignatius Church which is held during the academic year. You are also invited to our Residence Hall Liturgy which takes place monthly in one of the campus halls on a rotating schedule. Locations and times to be announced. 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.

Liturgical Ministries

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.


Other Services

Reconciliation:

Twice each academic year we gather as a community to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Individuals who wish to celebrate this sacrament of Reconciliation ("confession") at other times are invited to do so by approaching a priest through University Ministry, Saint Ignatius Parish or the Jesuit Community at USF. Those who would like to learn more about this sacrament may speak with any university minister.
