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.
8 PM Sunday Evening Mass
Featuring the gifts and talents of the Chestnut Hill community, the Sunday evening liturgy is open to all. Students, faculty, staff, and community members are invited to join in worship and are encouraged to take an active role through liturgical ministry, singing in the choir, playing an instrument, or contributing to periodic student reflections.
Daily Mass- 11:45 AM
Mass is offered daily, Monday through Friday, 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.
On a monthly 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.
