Liturgical Ministers

We invite students to volunteer as Eucharistic ministers and lectors for Mass. New liturgical ministers are trained and installed each year. Contact Jeff Schaffer for details.

Music Ministry / Mercy Music Ensemble

We encourage students to bring their musical gifts to worship at Mass and/or our Alive In Christ services.  Singers, cantors/song leaders and instrumentalists of all skill levels are welcome. If interested, please contact our Music Director, Mr. Rob MacReynolds.

We encourage students to join our chapel ensemble, including those who wish to be cantors/song leaders and instrumentalists. Our ensemble plays an integral role in our Sunday Masses and other special liturgies. There is also an opportunity to earn academic credit by enrolling in RS 235: Journeys in Spirituality!  If interested, please contact our Music Director, Mr. Rob MacReynolds.

Baptism, First Communion & Confirmation

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a program that prepares individuals who wish to become Catholic as well as those desiring Baptism, First Communion, or Confirmation. The program begins early in the academic year and culminates in the spring with the celebration of the Sacraments at Easter. Please contact Jeff Schaffer for more information.
