The Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary will be celebrated on campus this Thursday, December 8, in Christ the King Chapel at 12:05 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

The Immaculate Conception is a Holy Day of Obligation in the Roman Catholic Church, which makes it a day that Catholics around the world recognize to be especially meaningful to their faith lives. On this day, we recognize that Mary, the future Mother of God, was born without sin in anticipation of her acceptance of Christ into her life and Christ’s redeeming love.

Rev. Tom Slon, SJ, rector of the Jesuit Community, will preside at the 12:05 p.m. Mass with our very own director of public safety, deacon Wil Johnson, providing a homily. Rev. Jim Pribek will preside at the 8:30 p.m. Mass.
