Please join us for Liturgy of the Word services in the Catholic tradition. The Liturgy of the Word includes the same readings, song, and prayer as the Catholic mass (there is no communion rite). Together we come together in prayer, reflection, and song to lift up our needs and be community for one another. All are welcome.

For more information, please contact Brian DuSell or Mariah O’Grady.

St. Ignatius Parish Livestream Masses

Members of the USF community are welcome to join St. Ignatius Parish for livestream masses, Sundays at 10 a.m., and daily at 9 a.m.

Interested in joining the Catholic Church or being confirmed? 

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a year-long program offered on Sunday mornings by St. Ignatius Parish that welcomes anyone seeking baptism, first communion and/or confirmation into the Catholic Church. Please contact us at um@usfca.edu to find out more. 

MASS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

The Mass of the Holy Spirit is a tradition in Jesuit education dating back to the 16th century. Members of all faiths are invited to this common prayer for the Spirit's inspiration and guidance in living out our mission of educating leaders who will fashion a more humane and just world for all. As part of the liturgy, we will announce the Pedro Arrupe and Spirit of St. Francis student award winners, students whose academic records and values reflect the highest ideals of a Jesuit education. USF students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend. If you would like to sing in the liturgical choir for Mass of the Holy Spirit, please email Brian DuSell.

Worship Opportunities

USF embraces people of all faiths. Throughout the academic year, students of all religious traditions gather to examine their own values and explore new faith traditions around campus. University Ministry offers opportunities and information about worship in other faith traditions in this community and in the local area. Please visit our website for additional worship opportunities and a list of holidays from various faiths.

Liturgical Ministry

All members of the University are invited and encouraged to participate as fully as possible in USF's liturgical life by serving in specific liturgical ministries. To get involved, please email Brian DuSell.
