Mass is offered seven days per week in St. Jude Chapel during the fall and spring semesters, and during the summer session depending on the availability of a priest. Dates and times for Mass are regularly posted. The chapel is open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. for personal prayer.
Additionally, Aquinas College recently opened the Corpus Christi Adoration Chapel for perpetual Eucharistic adoration. The chapel is open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week year round for silent, private devotion. For more information about adoration at Aquinas, please visit the Adoration section of our website.
Two campus-wide masses are celebrated during the school year: the Holy Spirit Mass during the fall semester and the St. Thomas Aquinas Mass in the spring. While attendance is not mandatory, all students are encouraged to participate.
All classes at Aquinas begin with a prayer or spiritual reading. We also begin each meeting and event with a prayer. Many other opportunities for communal prayer are available, including an annual Living Rosary, weekly rosary recitations, biannual penance services, weekly Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and Stations of the Cross during Lent.
