At the centerpiece of Seattle University's Roman Catholic worship is the Chapel of Saint Ignatius.

The Chapel of St. Ignatius comes to life not only through the various colors of the windows shining onto the walls, but also through the persons that fill the space with different stories, desires, dreams and needs. Our liturgies are spiritual experiences: we encourage people to sing, respond and eat together, to share silences and prayer; to hear Scripture, the teaching of preachers and the witness of the assembly through heart-felt spontaneous prayers spoken for the life of the community and world. Our worship is participatory and we welcome all people -- especially our students -- "to find God in all things."

A variety of people with diverse gifts contribute to the vibrancy of our liturgies and our campus Catholic community. We welcome all people to consider sharing their gifts for the good of our community through one of our liturgical ministry leadership opportunities.
