Candlelight Mass in Christ the King Chapel

Join Campus Ministry for the first Candlelight Mass of the semester on Sunday, January 29 at 8:30 p.m. in Christ the King Chapel.

We will turn off the lights and light candles for the first of many Candlelight Masses this semester. Pray in meditative lighting, listen to beautiful student-led music and hear Rev. Bob Pecoraro, SJ, offer a homily on the day’s readings. The Candlelight Mass is a student favorite. All are welcome to attend!

Quick Guides to Technology

Quick Guides Flash

There are many technologies for teaching and learning available to faculty and their students. Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with those applications commonly used in coursework, such as email, Google Drive and Desire2Learn.  Faculty shouldn’t need to spend class time showing students how to use these applications.

The Center for Online Learning & Innovation and Information Technology Services have put together a technology guide for Canisius students.  This wiki page shows students what is available and where to find help and support resources for technologies supplied to them by the college. Professors, please direct your students to this resource, and include this link in your syllabus:

A separate guide is also available specifically for faculty and staff at:
