A Look Ahead to Fall Campus Liturgies

    July 28, 2020

    As students, faculty and staff look ahead to a new semester on campus, they can expect daily and weekly campus liturgies to take place, albeit with some changes such as Royal Card access and social distancing. Safety measures that will be implemented meet the directives from the Diocese of Scranton.

    "We're very happy to be able to offer weekday and Sunday in-person Masses for our students, faculty and staff this fall," said Herbert Keller, S.J., vice president for Mission and Ministry. "Celebrating Mass and praying together safely as a school community will be a great blessing for us, especially at this time."

    Upon the University's fall reopening, the University community is invited to attend the weekly campus liturgy every Sunday at 7:00 p.m. in the Byron Recreation Complex. In addition, one liturgy will be celebrated each day at 12:05 p.m. in Madonna della Strada Chapel (students, faculty and staff only, with limited seating).

    Communion will be distributed at the end of Mass.seating for social distancing at mass.jpg

    The Office of Campus Ministries will continue to provide online opportunities for prayer and reflection such as virtual retreat opportunities and smaller in-person retreats. In addition, Campus Ministries staff and the staff of the Center for Service and Social Justice will be present in offices and available to students throughout the fall semester.

    The Jesuit Center staff will provide virtual and in-person spiritual programs for faculty and staff members and will be present in their offices and available throughout the fall semester.
