Worship

Catholic & Christian Resources

While we are not able to offer mass in the Mission Church while the shelter in place order is still in effect, weekly Sunday liturgies are now available for you to stream virtually.

Students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the university are welcome at these liturgies, which are held Sundays at 10:00 a.m., PDT.

Originally, we asked you to pre-register here: https://bit.ly/SCUliturgy. While you can still subscribe via Zoom, the number of spaces are limited there.  Should you join via Zoom, we do ask you to mute your microphone during the liturgy unless directed otherwise.

We now recommend: 

Subscribe to the Campus Ministry YouTube account to view the LiveStream.

Once you subscribe you will receive a notification when the LiveStream begins. Visit the Campus Ministry YouTube page on Sunday morning to watch the mass.

 

During this time we know that your ability to contribute financially may be greatly limited. If you would like to participate in stewardship, please consider one of the following opportunities:

Student Emergency Assistance Fund

Bronco Food Pantry (see notes on how to donate)

Staff and Faculty Special Assistance Fund

Diocese of San Jose

Second Harvest Food Bank

Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County

Mission Church

Campus Ministry

The Diocese of San Jose prepared this simple guide to help us be as engaged as we can be in liturgy during this time. Please consider these guidelines for any of the masses you join in, and how these principles may inform other virtual engagement in classes, meetings, and other "zoom moments."

 

For further reflection...

Rosie Shawver, a graduate of SCU's Jesuit School of Theology ('06), is the board chairwoman of the Catholic Campus Ministry Association. She wrote this blog post about her own personal challenges with distance from the Eucharist during this pandemic, a struggle felt the world over. Though her reflection is directed for the students she serves at the University of Southern California Catholic Caruso Center, we hope it speaks to anyone experiencing this same hardship.
