Catholic Liturgies and opportunities
Our Hall has a Roman Rite (English) Mass every Sunday at 10pm and every Wednesday at 9:30pm in our dorm chapel on the first floor.
Our hall liturgy is special because the leaders, the participants, the commmunity are all from Walsh. The choir, the lectors, the musicians, the Extraordinary ministers of communion, the sacristans, the intercession writers--all Walshies. For many, it's the first time we are able to CHOOSE to pray and worship with our peer communities-and it's a powerful experience. We come as we are. Tired, sometimes stressed, and often in our pajamas! This is a place where we feel at home with God, believing that God and our community accepts us as we are, flaws and pajamas and all, and the experience energizes us for the week! Similarly, it's empowering to see the many fruitful contributions and roles for women in a Catholic liturgy, especially modeled for us by our friends and roommates. Obviously anyone is welcome, so bring your friends and family, and if you feel called to share yourself in the ways mentioned above, email the Rector Liz (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up for liturgical minister training.
We hope everyone comes to Walsh Hall Mass at least once, even if you're not Catholic, and even if your liturgical expression is different. All are welcome! But if you need something different, we hope your spirit is nourished from some places linked below. For people who prefer different expressions of our Catholic Mass, Campus Ministry has a variety of links to help connect you to a liturgy that speaks to your heart.
There are also several sites that offer resources to enhance our full participation at Mass and enliven our spirituality:
