Campus Ministry

Our Mission 

Mercyhurst University Campus Ministry creates a hospitable environment and a locus for spiritual development of the entire university community. By our grounding in the Catholic tradition and Mercy heritage we support all faith traditions, foster holistic, communal development, and nurture leadership focused in service and justice.

When classes are in session, Sunday Mass is celebrated in Christ the King Chapel at 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and daily Mass is offered every Monday through Thursday at 8:00 a.m.. The 11:00 a.m. Mass is offered every week (including the summer), whether or not classes are in session. Please note that our annual Christmas Eve Mass will be held on Sunday, December 24th, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. in Christ the King Chapel.

Contact a member of our staff to learn more about our many active student-led retreats, fellowship groups and outreaches.
