Embracing Sacred Time.
At Saint Francis, we set aside part of each day as Sacred Time. Why? Because we believe that every member of our community should have daily time for prayer and reflection. Whether you attend Mass or pray privately, we honor this sacred time for each of us to grow in our relationship with Jesus.
- Sunday Student Mass – 7:30 p.m. in St. Francis Chapel
- Daily Mass (M-F) – 11 a.m. in St. Francis Chapel
The Sacrament of Penance is available in the St. Francis Chapel at the following times:
- Monday-Friday after the 11 a.m. Mass until noon
- Sunday from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m.
- During Adoration on Thursdays from 8-9 p.m.
In keeping with the charism of our sponsoring community, the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration, we desire a campus community infused with the joy of the Eucharist. Deepen your faith and joy at Adoration, a silent time of prayer and devotion to Jesus and the Eucharist.
- Candlelight Adoration is held 8-9 p.m. most Thursdays
Praise and Worship
A monthly period of communal worship centered on personal testimony and music. Music is led by our student worship band. Praise and Worship nights will be posted on Cougar Life and the university events calendar.
“I wanted to attend a faith-based college for my own sense of self-discovery. Even though I’m not Catholic, I am very involved in Campus Ministry and Bible study. At first, I wasn’t sure how it would go, but quickly realized it didn’t matter if I was Catholic or not. Everyone is there to grow and support each other.”Mary Catherine Panico ’23 Chemistry
“I love going to the Chapel. I can sit in quiet, pray and get centered.”Veronica Loeffler ’25 Music Technology major
“I attended Mass regularly on campus and I also liked going to Praise and Worship. I made some really good friends at these events. We were all on our own faith journeys, but we were still connected.”Lizzie Gomez ’23 Nursing major
“Having a deeper faith has changed my view of the world. I’m much more aware of others and ready to respond. In some ways, my faith development started as a journey of outer awareness. Now I’m much more aware of Christianity and am conscious of it in my daily life.”Grant Giacomin ’23 Graphic Design major
