The Eucharist is the mystery of faith par excellence: “the sum and summary of our faith” (CCC, 1327) and life of the Church. Participating in communal liturgical life informs our institute’s mission to “not presume to take possession of reality, but instead accept it as a gift, discovering in all things the reflection of the Creator and seeing in every person his living image” (Evangelium vitae, 83).
A weekly Institute Mass for students, faculty, and staff is celebrated during the academic year each Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. in St. Vincent de Paul Chapel at The Catholic University of America.
In addition, the Institute community gathers for an Opening Mass and a Graduation Mass to open and close each academic year.
Music for all Institute liturgies is led by the student schola, which practices weekly. Contact the Institute offices if you would like to join.
There are additional opportunities for Mass, confession, and communal prayer at some of our neighboring institutions:
