Liturgy and Worship
As a Benedictine institution, we are called to help form the faith community on our campus. In this spirit, we offer a variety of liturgy and worship opportunities throughout the academic year.
All are welcome to participate in our weekly Student Mass, held at the St. John's Abbey Church at 9:00 PM. Please note that there is no Student Mass if there are no classes scheduled the following Monday. Students are invited to serve at these Masses and can participate in several ways:
- The Campus Ministry Choir leads the congregation in song. This unique ensemble sings a wide range of music, from Gregorian chant to contemporary choral music. The group rehearses every Sunday at 7:45 PM.
- Lectors proclaim the Old Testament reading, the Epistle, and also read the General Intercessions and collection announcement.
- Eucharistic Ministers serve the Body and Blood of Christ to the assembly during Communion.
- Hospitality Ministers greet assembly members as they enter the church and assist with collecting the money offering.
For more information about serving in one of the roles listed above, please contact our Director of Liturgy and Music, Chris Labadie.
We offer Daily Mass every day that classes are in session. Come to Mary Chapel (Mary Hall #001) weekdays at 12:35 PM to participate in this Mass.
CSB and SJU Campus Ministry will be celebrating a Spanish Mass the second Sunday of each month at 2:00 p.m. in the Emmaus Hall Chapel. Dates for this semester are as follows:
- February 16th
- March 16th
- April 13th 27th

There are several opportunities to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation:
- Confessions are heard prior to every Student Mass in the lower Abbey Church, from 8:15 - 8:45 PM.
- Communal Reconciliation services are organized each Advent and Lent.
- Lenten Reconciliation Service scheduled for Wednesday, March 26th at 8:00 p.m. in the Abbey Church.
- Finally, students may e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a private time to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Eucharistic Adoration is available every week that classes are in session. Saint Mary Chapel (located in Mary Hall 001) will be open for Eucharistic Adoration Wednesdays at 9:00 AM to 10:30 PM.
