Liturgy and Prayer


Each Sunday night, the DePaul community gathers to celebrate Mass at St. Vincent de Paul Church. Students prepare the liturgy and serve as the liturgical ministers (lectors, Eucharistic ministers, altar servers, hospitality ministers and music ministers). The DePaul Liturgical Choir leads the music, which includes everything from hymns and chants to contemporary and world music. After Mass, refreshments are served by Catholic Campus Ministry Student Leaders.

Whether you go to Mass weekly, once in a while, or have never been to a Catholic Mass, you are welcome here! Come celebrate with us!

For more information about Sunday Night Mass, contact Matt Merkt or Martyna Szmitko.

Mass is celebrated each weekday in the St. Louise de Marillac Chapel (Lincoln Park - Student Center) and the Miraculous Medal Chapel (Loop - Lewis Center). Faculty, staff and students are all welcome to participate.

The DePaul Liturgical Choir is an ensemble of undergraduate and graduate students whose primary purpose is leading the music each week at Sunday Night Mass. Rehearsals are held on Thursday afternoons in the St. Louise de Marillac Chapel in the Student Center. No audition is required, just the ability to match pitch.

Instrumentalists are also encouraged to share their talents. Strings, woodwinds, brass, guitar and percussion are all used throughout the year, with rehearsals scheduled as needed.

For more information about the Liturgical Choir or instrumental music, contact Matt Merkt or Jimmy O’Leary.
