Mass Schedule

Mass is celebrated Monday-Tuesday and Thursday-Friday on school days in our Chapel at 8 a.m. All are welcome to attend.

Adoration and Confession occur on select Fridays in our Chapel; check school calendar in OnCampus for most current schedule.

All-School Masses

Students, faculty, and staff attend all-school Masses four or five times during the school year on holy days of obligation and other special occasions such as the Mass of the Holy Spirit, a Jesuit tradition to begin a new school year, and the Missioning Mass that commissions juniors to their year-long service projects. The gymnasium is transformed into a place of prayer for the all-school Masses. 

Class Masses

Students and faculty attend class Masses once each quarter to celebrate the Eucharist as a class. Masses are held in the Boian Chapel during the first class period of the day.

If you are interested in being involved in planning a liturgy, serving, or helping with music, please contact Dr.  Callahan, mcallahan@desmet.org.

Prayer Groups

Several prayer groups are offered at De Smet Jesuit. Some meet weekly, while other are for a more defined period of time like Advent & Lent. Please see descriptions below or go to the Campus Ministry Center for more information.
