Mass of the Holy Spirit

At the beginning of each academic year, the Santa Clara University communicty celelbrates the Mass of the Holy Spirit. As a University community rooted in the Jesuit Catholic tradition, many of us call on the Spirit of God to be with us in all our works, activities, and endeavors. While the Mass is a Roman Catholic liturgy, we honor the diversity of faith perspectives within our community, and we welcome one and all to join in the celebration.

This fall, the Mass of the Holy Spirit will be celebrated at noon on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, in the Mission Church. To enable the campus community to attend the Mass, classes will not meet between 11:45 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. that day. Classes that usually meet from 11:45 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. will be cancelled. Classes schedule to begin at 1p.m. will instead begin at 1:15 p.m.
