Mass of the Holy Spirit

Friday, Aug. 9, 2013
Celebration of the Mass of the Holy Spirit

On Wednesday, October 2, 2013, at 12:00 p.m. in the Mission Church, we will celebrate our annual Mass of the Holy Spirit, followed by a picnic lunch on the St. Ignatius Lawn. At this special liturgy, Santa Clara will continue the centuries-old tradition among Catholic colleges and universities of calling upon the Holy Spirit to guide and bless us in our work throughout the academic year.Through our common prayer, we call on the Spirit of God to be with us in all our works, activities, and endeavors.  While the Mass is a Roman Catholic liturgy, we appreciate the diversity of faiths within our community, and we welcome one and all to join in the celebration.


To enable the campus community to attend the Mass, classes will not meet between 11:45 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. that day.  Classes that usually meet from 11:45 A.M. to 12:50 p.m. will be cancelled.  Classes scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. will instead begin at 1:15 p.m.
