Fun Facts about Joey:
Through eucharistic adoration, we encounter the real presence of our Lord. During this encounter, we are fully present with the physical being of Christ. This is an opportunity to give ourselves fully to Christ who meets us where we are.
Adoration is offered on campus every Wednesday in the Saint Joseph's chapel from 10 am to 10 pm.
University Ministry also offers Awake Nights throughout the year. Awake Nights consist of a speaker and adoration. Each one has a unique speaker who shares insight for the first half hour. This is then followed by an hour of adoration. During adoration, praise is sung, along with many moments of silence with the Lord.
The celebration of the Eucharist is a central part of Christian worship. At Marian mass is offered on campus daily and on Sundays as the schedule follows...
We also offer All Campus Masses throughout the semester. These are opportunities for all students, faculty and staff members, and anyone of the Marian community to join in celebration. During these times, in order to allow all those wishing to participate, classes and meetings are canceled.
Reconciliation is offered half an hour before mass with the celebrant of that mass. Our campus chaplain, Fr. Barry Fischer, offers Chaplain's Corner on Tuesdays (9:30-11:20) in Alumni Hall and Thursdays (10-12) in the Evans Center, where he will also hear confessions.
We welcome all faith beliefs to celebrate with us!
If you are wishing to participate, but need a resource to the mass here is a guide to the Catholic Mass.
Masses need ministers to help with the parts of the mass. On campus, our students can be ministers in the areas of serving, greeting, lectoring, and ministering the Eucharist. If you are looking to help with the masses, we train liturgical ministers at the beginning of the school year. This training is necessary for those looking to be servers, hospitality ministers, lectors, and Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion (EMHCs).
For more information contact Joey Garcia.
Another ministry of the mass is music ministry through the sacred choir. Sacred Choir is a group of students that prepare the music for worship for all of our Campus Masses, an evening of prayer and song, and off-campus outings. These students gather on Friday afternoons in the Bishop Chartrand Memorial Chapel from 2:00-4:00 pm to lift their hearts and voices to God in praise.
Sacred Choir is a one-credit course, but can be a half-credit or non-credit based on your schedule.
Welcome to students with any type of musical background.
There are many different opportunities to pray on campus. Just like all the students on campus, each person's prayer is unique to them. There are numerous types of prayers, along with communal and individual prayers. There are many opportunities on campus for prayer.
Some of many prayer opportunities include...
Don't be afraid to try some less structured prayer styles as well...
