Campus Ministry

The basis of campus ministry is our commitment to the dignity of human life and respect for each person. In doing so, we focus on the spiritual life of Briar Cliff students and seek to integrate faith and action. Here are some ways we offer spiritual growth at BCU:


Celebrate Mass daily on campus, at the Chapel of Our Lady of Grace. Find mass times »

Eucharistic Adoration

Eucharistic Adoration and confessions are held from 7:45 p.m. — 8:45 p.m. on Thursdays at the Chapel of Our Lady of Grace.

Liturgical Ensembles

Do you sing or play an instrument? Help energize Mass and special services by joining our liturgical ensemble. For more info or to volunteer, contact campus ministry »

Prayer Requests

Daily prayer requests are circulated around campus. If you have a specific reason or person for which you'd like the BCU community to pray, you can submit a prayer request »
