Chapel Hours During Winter Break

Our Lady of the Woods Chapel will be closed from December 11 to January 7.

Numerous Christmas Eve and Day liturgies are available at parishes close to campus:

  • Holy Family at 4.30 p.m. on Sunday and 10 a.m. on Monday
  • St. Agnes at 5:30 and 9 p.m. on Sunday and 10 a.m. on Monday
  • St. Brigid at 5 p.m. on Sunday and 8 and 10:15 a.m. on Monday
  • St. James at 5 and 11 p.m. on Sunday and 8:30 and 11 a.m. on Monday
  • St. Raphael at 4 and 10 p.m. on Sunday and 10:30 a.m. on Monday
  • St. Francis of Assisi at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday and 10 a.m. on Monday

For those who find calendars interesting, not only is the Fourth Sunday of Advent the same day as Christmas Eve this year (making parish priests and musicians working an extraordinary number of Masses within 36 hours) but in 2018, Ash Wednesday will be on St. Valentine’s Day and Easter Sunday will be April Fools’ Day!

  • We encourage students, colleagues and visitors to approach us in person during the week, before Mass and/or by appointment when they have a comment, concern or a complaint about the Chapel or our ministry. Frequently, there are comments connected to a policy or procedure which can be explained or resolved easily.
  • In the event that the personal encounter is not possible or desirable, or the personal encounter does not yield an appropriate response, we invite students to send written feedback by following the process outlined in the current Student Handbook. We invite colleagues and visitors to express their concern in writing and send to either the Director of Campus Ministry or the Vice-President of Student Affairs for resolution.
