Journey in faith

Student Life


Sunday Eucharist:  7 p.m. each Sunday in St. Dominic Chapel during the academic year. All are welcome.

There are two Catholic churches within a mile of campus: St. Joseph Catholic Church and St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Whatever your denomination, look below or contact the Lenawee Churches web link for times, locations and phone number contacts. The Campus Ministry team will gladly assist you in making contact and even in getting help with transportation if you need it.

Worship Committee: We would love your creative input in planning themes, music ideas and décor for our Sunday liturgies as well as for the seasons of Advent, Lent and Easter. The committee also helps plan the four special Sunday liturgies that conclude this list. 

Liturgical Ministry Opportunities: Would you like to be a reader, an extraordinary minister of the Eucharist, a singer, a musician or a sacristan?  All are welcome; even if you’ve never been a reader or extraordinary minister of the Eucharist, we will provide proper preparation.

Marriage Preparation: Contact Campus Ministry if you hear wedding bells in the foreseeable future. Marriage preparation typically takes place through your parish; however, the Campus Ministry team can help with the details. Weddings may take place here on campus in St. Dominic Chapel. For more information contact Fr. John Grace at 264-7198.

Special Liturgies
Memorial Mass: 
Each year in November, the month traditionally dedicated to prayer remembrance of our deceased friends and loved ones we focus a Sunday night liturgy on the members of our Siena Heights community who have died in the past year. We mention each by name, graced by the presence of their family members.

Alumni Mass: During Homecoming Weekend, alumni return to campus, joined by families of current students for an annual reunion that is delightful and energizing. One of the highlights of the weekend is a special Alumni Mass.

A Celebration of “Our” Saints:  A liturgy to both celebrate and witness to what it means to be a Saint both on and off the field. The personal witness messages of various athletes are an annual inspiration to us all.

Christmas Candlelight Eucharist: The academic year is not exactly in perfect sync with the liturgical year. The Sunday before first semester exams is our last Mass before Christmas. It falls during Advent. But since this is our final celebration of the Eucharist before the Nativity, the night’s liturgy, set in a halo of candlelight, includes a pre-celebration of Christmas. You sure won’t want to miss this one.

Baccalaureate Mass: The morning of commencement we gather for this special celebration of the Eucharist honoring those who will soon be awarded degrees. The gathering is especially energized by the presence of many family members and friends of our graduates. 

Other Worship Opportunities

Simply stated, College Life is students who love God and their neighbors, and seek to live that out in an intentional way. Denominationally ambiguous and no past experience necessary, College Life is a come-as-you-are equal opportunity group where everyone is welcome and all are encouraged to grow in their faith.
