As a community of faith, Chestnut Hill College honors the faith traditions of all its members and strives to provide opportunities to worship and celebrate together on a regular basis.
Rooted in the Roman Catholic faith, the Chestnut Hill College Campus Community celebrates weekday and Sunday evening liturgies in Carlino Chapel in Fournier Hall. All are welcome to join the community in prayer as we celebrate Mass.
Monthly Community Masses
Campus Ministry coordinates monthly liturgies featuring the gifts, talents, and intentions of our community members. Check your CHC email for information about October, November, and December masses!
Sunday Masses at Our Mother of Consolation Parish
For our Catholic students on campus who wish to attend a Sunday liturgy, we wish to communicate that all are welcome "up the hill" at Our Mother of Consolation Parish. Their masses are Saturdays at 4:30pm Sundays at 7:30, 9:00, 11:00am. OMC is accessible via the CHC shuttle that runs to the Chestnut Hill East train station. Please let Anna know if you have any questions about that.
Daily Mass- Tuesday and Thursday at 11:45 AM
Mass is offered daily, Tuesday and Thursday in Carlino Chapel at 11:45 AM. This liturgy is open to all members of the campus community. Take time for a prayerful pause in the midst of your day and join us to worship.
Midweek Meditation - Wednesdays at 4:00PM
We pause for ten minutes of quiet prayer through the Ignatian Examen, a way of finding God in our daily lives. While the weather is warm, we meet in the Garden of Forgiveness. We will offer the Examen in Carlino Chapel during inclement weather and the colder months.
On a regular basis, Campus Ministry intentionally gathers the entire campus community for prayer in a space where all are welcome. The richness of diversity is honored, articulated, and given voice in these experiences. Fostering community on a deeper level, students, staff, faculty, and contract service workers come together as equals in prayer in this public witness to the core beliefs of Chestnut Hill College.

Members of the campus community join their voices in prayer at each location, sharing in the cry for unity and peace in our world, country, city, campus, and our own hearts.
