This first Shared Mission during Community Time of the 2013-2014 academic year affords the College the opportunity to gather in a spirit of faith and community in the Chapel and to call forth blessings on the beginning of the academic year.
In keeping with a long tradition dating from the founding of the great European universities in the Middle Ages, Saint Mary's College of California celebrates the Mass of the Holy Spirit at the start of each academic year. During this Eucharistic Liturgy, we ask for the inspiration, guidance, and presence of God's Spirit on all of our campus activities. We begin with invocations representing some of our diverse faith traditions, and we end with a blessing as we rededicate ourselves to the Saint Mary's mission, renew friendships, and welcome new members of our college community
Come one, Come all.
