Prayer and worship are central elements of any faith. For Catholics, the celebration of the Eucharist is the source and summit of the community’s life and mission.
In addition to providing opportunities for Catholic Mass and other communal prayer, Saint Louis University’s Department of Campus Ministry connects students of different faith traditions to vibrant congregations across the St. Louis area.
St. Francis Xavier College Church serves as a worship space for both the University and a parish community. The parish is shepherded by Dan White, S.J. The campus ministry staff and parish staff work in tandem to provide worship and faith formation.

Sunday Mass Choir
Cantors, singers and instrumentalists are wanted for Sunday Masses and other liturgical
services that are supported by a mix of mainstream, traditional and contemporary liturgical
music led by volunteer student singers and instrumentalists.
When school is in session, a small ensemble leads the music for the 4:30 p.m. Sunday Mass, and a large choir and orchestra leads the assembly for the 9 p.m. Sunday Mass. The choir rehearses each Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. in College Church. The orchestra rehearses at 7:30 p.m. on Sundays. Contact Choir Director Sally Iocca at email@example.com for more information.
Lift your spirit alongside other faithful Billikens during praise services in Spring Hall chapel every Tuesday at 9 p.m. Contemporary music, heart-changing preaching and Eucharistic adoration make for an exhilarating prayer experience. Come worship and pray as the body of Christ.
