Celebrate and create new traditions at the Advent Mass and Christmas Tree Lighting. 

It’s that time of the year where the campus and greater community come together to kickoff the holiday season with heaps of festive cheer and good tidings.

Join us on December 1 at 6 p.m. for the annual Alumni Advent Mass at the Chapel of St. Ignatius. Following the service, participate in a candlelight procession to the Lemieux Library Plaza for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting starting at 7 p.m., a night sure to be filled with fun, food and carols.

Once the tree is lit, the festivities continue, from a carousel bounce house and DIY snow globes to pictures with Santa, a Chicago-style pizza food truck and warm adult beverages for our 21+ guests. Oh, and yes, there will be cookies!

The event is free but an RSVP is requested.
