Worship & Prayer

 
 

Students attend Mass on the Grass, an outdoor Mass held at the start of each fall semester.

A current schedule for Sunday Mass and other liturgical services are available in The Vine newsletter (on campus), or by contacting the Campus Ministry Office. Information about church and synagogue services in the Greensburg area is also available. Ecumenical Prayer Services for the entire University community are held several times each semester. 

Spiritual programming and sacramental ministry are provided to nurture students' spirituality and human growth. In addition to regular liturgical and prayer experiences, there are opportunities for retreats, evenings of reflection, Bible study and faith sharing.
