The Chapel of St. Ignatius at Seattle University currently offers Sunday Mass at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. We also have weekday masses Monday - Friday at 12:30 p.m. The Chapel is open for visiting from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday - Friday. It is closed on Saturday, except for special events. On Sunday it is open immediately before and after scheduled Masses.
All are welcome, regardless of university affiliation.
Parking on campus is free, but you must register your car through a QR code at the front door of the chapel. Scan the code and enter your license plate number.
Please continue to follow guidance for mitigating infection: wash your hands frequently and correctly, avoid touching your face, use hand sanitizing stations located throughout the Chapel, cover your mouth with your elbow or a tissue when coughing or sneezing, sanitize hands after using a tissue for nose or mouth, and stay home if you feel sick.
Sunday Mass in the Catholic tradition serves as gathering of prayer and song for our university community. We gather to bless and praise God, to pray for the life of the world, and to be transformed as people for and with others. Our Sunday gatherings are meant to send us back into the week ready to engage the many demands of our studies, relationships, and communities. Additional opportunities are available to gather and celebrate in community at 12:30 p.m. weekday Mass for sustenance in the scriptures and in communion.
After the 5 p.m. Mass, plan to stay for our after Mass social or other programming!
*No 5 p.m. Mass or evening Reconciliation during summer and during academic breaks
The Sacrament of Reconciliation (previously known as "Confession") is available on Sundays during the academic year at 4:15 p.m., or after any Mass in the Chapel of St. Ignatius, providing that the presider is available after the liturgy. Approach the priest and ask if he is available to celebrate the sacrament with you. Reconciliation is also available by appointment.
We also offer a Reconciliation Prayer Service each Lent, where we pray communally for forgiveness and the individual Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered.
