An important part of our Augustinian journey is taking part in liturgy (Mass and Prayer Service).
Mass is the central act of worship in the Roman Catholic Church. The Mass, or the Eucharist, is “the source and summit of the Christian life.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1324) It is of paramount importance to the faith life of the school that our entire school community gathers together to celebrate the Mass.
Students and faculty members participate in the liturgical ministries, which are organized by the Director of Campus Ministry, our Chaplain (an occasional visiting priests), and our Choral Director.
Prayer Services are held in our Chapel of Saint Augustine at various important national and liturgical times of the year. The school community gathers together to worship through prayer, reading of the Word, and song. The services also offer an opportunity to reflect on the true Christian dimensions of various occasions such as Thanksgiving, Advent, Christmas, Ash Wednesday, and Easter.
