Worship & Prayer
The Office of Campus Ministry offers the Georgian Court University community multiple opportunities for worship and prayer.
- Daily Mass takes place Monday through Thursday at 12:00 noon in the Dorothy Marron University Community Chapel.
- Sunday Mass is celebrated on Sundays when classes are in session at 5:00 p.m. in the Dorothy Marron University Community Chapel. All are welcome.
- Masses are also offered throughout the year for special occasions such as Mercy Day, Holy Spirit Mass, and Commencement.
We invite students to volunteer as Eucharistic ministers and lectors for Mass. New liturgical ministers are trained and installed each year. Contact Father Anthony DiPalma for details.
Mercy Music Ensemble
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.
Private Confessions are available throughout the year upon request. Please contact Father Anthony DiPalma for an appointment.
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 Father Anthony DiPalma for more information.
Other Prayer Services
Prayer services are organized by Campus Ministry. These include ecumenical and interfaith services such as peace vigils and prayerful responses to various community and global concerns are planned as the need arises. These may take place in the chapel, near the Peace Pole, or at other campus locations.
Special prayers requests, including Mass intentions, may be requested by the GCU community through campus ministry. Contact Jennifer DePietro with requests.
