All are welcome.
We put that first because it’s the most important thing for you to know about us. While the Mount is a college in the Catholic and Dominican tradition, that doesn’t mean you have to be Catholic, Christian, or even religious to participate in Campus Ministry.
And there’s no pressure on your level of involvement. Want to go to Mass daily or weekly? Great! Join our numerous students who regularly attend Mass together or even volunteer as lectors or altar servers. Just want to show up to a meeting and get some free mac and cheese? We’re cool with that. We mean this when we say it: All are truly welcome, and you will belong here, no matter your background.
Discover FAITH. Discover Family.
Come and worship with us! All Masses take place during the school year in the Chapel of the Most Holy Rosary and are open to the public.
Sunday: 6 pm
Monday-Friday: 11:30 am
We also offer confession every Thursday from 3:30-5 pm. All are welcome to come by for a few minutes of quiet prayer or to talk with Fr. Greg.
Off-Campus Places of Worship
If you are from another faith tradition or would like to worship off campus, here are a number of religious organizations in the local area. Fr. Greg would also be happy to help you find a local house of worship; just contact Campus Ministry.
“Henry Beecher said ‘The Church is not a gallery for the exhibition of eminent Christians, but a school for the education of imperfect ones.’ Our Campus Ministry is not only a safe place to protect your faith, but a safe place to grow, be challenged and to enhance your spiritual journey. Inspiration is why you will want to be part of our family.” - Alyssa Esteves ’23
If you’re interested in receiving some of your sacraments or becoming Catholic, our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program is available for students looking to receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Communion, and Confirmation. We’ve been thrilled to welcome dozens of students to Catholicism each year through this program. Please contact Fr. Greg if you are interested.
Weddings and Funerals
Many of our alumni love to come back to campus to get married in our Chapel of the Most Holy Rosary. If you are a Mount alumnus/na interested in getting married in the chapel, please contact Fr. Greg at 845-569-3154 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Funerals and memorial Masses and services can only be held for members of the Dominican Sisters of Hope and the MSMC community.
