Mass

University ministry and our Franciscan values

We offer a variety of opportunities for prayer, reflection, spiritual enrichment and service on campus. All of these opportunities are focused on a Franciscan value of the year. In 2019-2020 Stritch is placing an emphasis on reverencing all of creation.

Mass is celebrated three times a week during the academic year (September-May) and all are welcome.
