Worship

spiritual journey prayer

Throughout the year, the faith community gathers to recognize and celebrate God’s faithful presence, unconditional love, and involvement in our life and world through worship.

Some members of the Quincy University Community are involved in serving at Mass as an Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, Musician, Cantor, Server, Lector, or Hospitality Minister.  Other members lead various prayer services, conduct retreats, or participate in Bible Study.  Others find St. Francis Solanus Chapel as a place for quiet prayer.  Still others are engaged in community service, service learning, and mission trips.

Campus Ministry also has resources to help you locate a faith community for worship.

Communal Prayer

Celebration of the Eucharist:
Sunday and weekday liturgies offer opportunities to gather in prayer and thanksgiving. The foundation of faith life at QU is the daily and Sunday celebration of the Eucharist. To help make liturgy a true celebration, students serve as Ministers of the Eucharist, Word, Altar, Hospitality, and Music (for vocal and instrumental contact Fr.
