Sacred Liturgy & Prayer

Feast-of-Christ-the-King_4555They were continually in the temple praising God. (Lk 24:53)

The Chaplaincy at Christendom College fosters the celebration of the Christian mystery, of the beauty of God’s grace, lived in the sacred liturgy, in the sacraments, in prayer.  The daily celebration of the Mass is the center of College life, and is complemented by Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament, by the daily offering of the Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation, and by ample opportunities for devotions and for prayer.

As a natural expression of the Catholic identity of the University, the university community should give a practical demonstration of its faith in its daily activity, with important moments of reflection and of prayer. . . . Members of this community will be offered opportunities to assimilate Catholic teaching and practice into their lives and will be encouraged to participate in the celebration of the sacraments, especially the Eucharist as the most perfect act of community worship. (Ex Corde Ecclesiae, 39)
