Muslim Jumu'ah Salah (Friday Prayer)
Jumu'ah Salah (Friday prayer) is held on Fridays at 1:15 in the Muslim Prayer Room in the Lincoln Park Student Center Suite 329.
Jewish Shabbat (monthly)
Friday Night Shabbat services and dinner are held the first Friday of every month at 6:30 pm in the Interfaith Sacred Space on the 1st floor of the Lincoln Park Student Center. Contact Matthew Charnay for other opportunities to celebrate Shabbat with DePaul community members.
Eucharistic Adoration is held every other Tuesday during the Academic Year on Tuesdays at 8pm in the St. Louise de Marillac Chapel. Come spend some time in a darkly lit Chapel, with others, in a quiet, contemplative form of prayer. There is no music no preaching, no expectations. Just time to be alone with God…together.
Evening Prayer in the Style of Taizé
This prayer form comes from an ecumenical (all Christians) monastic community in the hills of France, and is comprised of short, repeated songs, silence, and prayer texts. The St. Louise Chapel is lit only with candles, so it’s a great way to wind down, and have a few moments of peace and quiet.
