Campus Ministry

You can learn a lot about yourself by helping others.

If we had to sum ourselves up in one word, what would it be? Franciscan! What does it mean? We serve others, care for each other and creation, and are open to all. At Briar Cliff, we focus on the spiritual life of students and seek to integrate faith and action:


Celebrate Mass during Sundays and select weekdays on campus, at the Chapel of Our Lady of Grace. Find mass times »


Confession is held from 8:15 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. on Thursdays, and on 6:15 to 6:45 p.m. on Sundays, prior to Mass at the Chapel of Our Lady of Grace.
