Liturgy and Worship

We seek to create an environment in which we worship together.
When we worship together we create community.
We invite all members of our University to take an active role.

Mass


OLLU holds daily Mass Tuesday-Thursday afternoons as well as a traditional Mass on Sunday evenings. All are invited to join us in our Catholic Liturgical celebrations.

By gathering to pray in public, we mark our time together as sacred and recognize that we are in the presence of our loving God. Our worship nourishes us and also impels us to live our lives with Gospel values and the call of our Provident God to share all that we are with others.

For us as a Catholic University the Celebration of the Eucharist is source and summit of our faith. It is the lived expression of our one baptism in Christ. We gather to celebrate the church’s sacraments, and to mark significant moments in the life of this University and the heritage of the Sisters of the Congregation of Divine Providence.

Volunteer Opportunities

Liturgy, the work of the people, calls forth student leadership in vocal and instrumental music ministry, hospitality, proclamation, and serving as Eucharistic Ministers, and is always open to all who have been called and formed for their ministry. Students who are interested in Liturgical Ministry may become involved through the following volunteer opportunities:
  • Cantor – Individuals who desire to lead the assembly in liturgical singing are encouraged to explore the ministry of the cantor.
  • Lector – A person who proclaims the Scriptures during liturgical services
  • Choir Member – If you love to sing you can volunteer to be part of the University Ministry choir, not necessarily affiliated with the University Chorus
  • Altar Server – Assists the priest in preparing the altar and assisting at our liturgical services
  • Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion – Those who assist in sharing the Body and Blood of Christ during our Eucharistic celebrations
If interested in any of the above, contact University Ministry at ministry@ollusa.edu for training and involvement.
