Just a reminder that Canisius will celebrate the Mass of the Holy Spirit today, Wednesday, September 13 at 10:00 a.m. in the Montante Cultural Center. All campus community members are welcome to attend, regardless of their faith tradition.

As a Catholic, Jesuit University, one of Canisius’ annual traditions is to celebrate the Mass of the Holy Spirit at the beginning of each academic year. This wonderful tradition allows us to celebrate our solidarity as a campus community and ask the spirit of God to bless our studies, work, and activities throughout the academic year. Our academic calendar includes a special break in the class schedule on this day so that all members of our campus community (students, faculty, and staff) have the opportunity to attend and participate in the Mass. As a reminder, any classes that normally meet on a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday pattern do not meet on this day. Classes that normally meet on Wednesday only or on a Monday and Wednesday pattern will still meet on this day.

Part of our tradition includes a formal procession of faculty members in their academic regalia.  

After the mass, brunch will be served in the Richard E. Winter ’42 Student Center Economou Dining Hall.
