Places to Pray On Campus
The Swartz Center for Spiritual Life is home to Campus Ministry and features the beautiful Marian Chapel, with its two-story stained glass doors that can be opened for special outdoor liturgical celebrations. The Eucharistic Liturgy (Mass) is celebrated each Sunday, and the chapel is open daily as a place of communal or private prayer.
Blessed Sacrament Chapel
The Blessed Sacrament chapel, located to the right of the altar in the Marian Chapel, is an inviting space for private adoration and prayer. In addition, Praise and Worship adoration takes place on Wednesday evenings during the academic year.
The Reflection Room located in the Liberal Arts Center, Room 219, is dedicated for use by Marywood University students, faculty, and staff of all faiths for structured or unstructured meditation, reflection, or prayer, individually or in groups.
The new Learning Commons has become the intellectual and social heart of campus. So it is only fitting that in the area directly in front of this gateway to bold ideas, we celebrate the bold hearts that founded the IHM Congregation in 1845 and Marywood in 1915. The focal point of this memorial is a fountain in honor of the IHM Congregation and its founders, at the exact site where the Motherhouse Chapel was once located. With your support, their bold spirits will continue to be a wellspring of inspiration and enlightenment for years to come.
