A: Nick Coffman, university chapels coordinator in Campus Ministry, writes that we have five chapels/sacred spaces on campus, including the Chapel of St. Ignatius, Immaculate Conception Chapel in the Administration Building, the Chardin Hall Chapel, and the Ecumenical Chapel and Multifaith prayer room, which are both in Campion Hall.
“Last year we recorded almost 30 weddings and 30 tours in the Chapel of St. Ignatius, more than 500 regularly scheduled Masses in our chapels and almost 200 other prayer/worship events,” Coffman writes. “Events in the chapels vary from Masses, School and Theology and Ministry Morning and Evening Prayer, St. Egidio Prayer Community gatherings, Ecumenical and Multi-faith prayer services, Reconciliation services, lectures, tours, weddings, fellowship gatherings…We have a very vibrant prayer life on campus!”
