Incarnate Word Day Mass


Our Lady's Chapel

4301 Broadway
San Antonio, TX 78209

Each year, the University sets aside a week for special celebrations of its mission. "Incarnate Word Week" encompasses the week surrounding March 25th, the Feast of the Annunciation - the major feast of the Congregation of Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word as well as of the University. Our Incarnate Word Day Mass will be celebrated on Monday, March 27, 2017. Incarnate Word Day celebrates the essence of the Feast of the Annunciation, Mary's "Yes" to God's call. At the Annunciation, an angel sent by God brought the message to Mary that God was asking her to be the Mother of Jesus, the Son of God. When Mary accepted God's offer, the Word (God) became one of us. God became "incarnate," with a body like ours; hence the name Incarnate Word. Because of His resurrection, the Incarnate Word continues to dwell among us.
