A goal of University Mission & Ministry is to promote a vibrant worshiping community at the University of the Incarnate Word. We bring together all members of the University community to serve and celebrate the traditional rites of the Catholic Church.
Education and leadership formation are at the forefront of our efforts. By involving students in every aspect of liturgical ministry, we have created an opportunity for them to understand and shape the sacred liturgies of the Church. All university liturgies, from the daily Masses to the Baccalaureate, are student coordinated, under the direction of the Liturgy & Music staff. It is our wish that these experiences will attribute to the formation of our students as lay leaders in their home parishes, and in the greater Church.
Located on the first floor of the Administration Building, weekday and weekend liturgies are celebrated year round.
Monday through Thursday 10:30 AM (year round)
12:00 PM 8:00 PM (during school year)
Friday's 12:00 PM
Fridays 11:30 AM
or by appointment with Fr. Tom Dymowski, O.SS.T.
