Begin the school year in the Jesuit tradition!

Celebrate the Mass of the Holy Spirit on Thursday, September 1 at 1:00 p.m. This Mass is open to all faculty, students, staff and friends of Canisius regardless of faith background and is intended to celebrate our communal ties in light of the Catholic, Ignatian tradition upon which our university is founded.

Join the procession from Christ the King Chapel with your club or organization, residence hall floor, athletic team, close group of friends or come alone and make some new friends! The faculty procession will meet at quad-side vestibule of Old Main. Opening remarks will begin outside of Christ the King Chapel. Faculty, please wear your full academic regalia. All others, please dress comfortably. Time spent in the heat outside will be minimal.

All student organizations present will be recognized and their leadership will be commissioned in front of the entire campus body. Organizations with high attendance may receive a special prize!

Mass will be followed by a free Chiavetta’s BBQ at approximately 2:00 p.m. in Bart Mitchell Quad.
