Prayer & Sacraments

Prayer is at the root of Christian life and the University Catholic Center. It is in prayer that we encounter Jesus and grow into a deeper relationship with Him. The Catholic Church has a rich history of prayer and we seek to provide opportunities for students to pray in a variety of ways. Liturgical worship is also central to Christianity and is an integral part of our family relationship with God. The signs, symbols, and sacred actions which form our public prayer and worship spring from the language and events of God’s own self-revelation to us. Our liturgical celebrations arise directly out of the mystery of salvation in Jesus Christ and are part of the very means by which we enter into that mystery.

At the University Catholic Center, we provide many opportunities for students to enter into prayer and participate in the liturgy! If you worship with our community and are looking to get more involved, you should consider signing up as a liturgical minister or as a member of the music ministry team! We are always actively seeking volunteers interested in helping out during Sunday Mass and worship events!

“AND WE HAVE THIS CONFIDENCE IN HIM, THAT IF WE ASK ANYTHING ACCORDING TO HIS WILL, HE HEARS US. AND IF WE KNOW THAT HE HEARS US IN REGARD TO WHATEVER WE ASK, WE KNOW THAT WHAT WE HAVE ASKED HIM FOR IS OURS.” – 1ST JOHN 5:14
