Liturgical Life

Study at the Institute affords students the opportunity to participate in liturgical life with fellow students and faculty at Caldwell Chapel at The Catholic University of America. An Institute Mass for students, faculty, and staff is celebrated each Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. Music for all Institute liturgies is led by the student schola, which practices weekly.

The Institute community also gathers for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on First Fridays at the St. John Paul II National Shrine.
