Student Body Liturgy
The Campus Ministry team coordinates the Liturgy of the Eucharist for the student body each month. These liturgies reflect the focus of the liturgical year. Students of all faiths can participate. At these celebrations, it is mandatory for all students to be in Mass dress code in accordance with the Student Handbook. Anyone interested in participating in the preparation for the liturgies should contact the Campus Ministry Center.

St. Francis' chapel is located on the south side of the upper campus. It is open to all students for prayer and quiet reflection. Students and members of the local community are welcome to join the Friars for quiet morning meditations at 6:15 a.m. and Mass at 6:45 a.m., followed by morning prayer. The Chapel is also available to classes during the day for prayer services or Mass. The Chapel remains open after school until midnight. The Chapel is closed on weekends and school holidays.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered during break and lunch on the first Friday of every month. Also, individual confessions are available on request from any of the priests at any time.
