Using prayer, shared experiences, and explorations of faith, we can enhance the spiritual life of our College community and beyond.
Liturgy & Lunch
Every Wednesday during Lent – beginning on Ash Wednesday, and continuing until the day before Holy Thursday – join the Community of St. Mark’s in prayer (daily Mass celebrated at St. Mark’s Chapel) and at lunch in Plato’s Cave Café. Special guests will facilitate dialogue about contemporary hot button issues, and encourage all who are gathered to cultivate the world anew.
Hope in the Pope
Pope Francis is a universal figure who has been catching the attention of young and old, people of all faith, and people who ascribe to no faith tradition. All are welcome to share in conversation about Pope Francis' weekly messages to the world and to share some cookies, tea and coffee.
Praying for Christian Unity
Every January, the Community of St. Mark’s, with the Theological Schools of the UBC and the general public, gather to pray for unity among Christians. A lite reception including food and fellowship follows each event. For more information, please visit the Academic and Activities Calendar
Leadership Prayer Breakfast
This annual event, hosted by City in Focus
, attracts over 1,000 people from all walks of life: public servants, business leaders, not-profit organizations and students. Together, we offer support and pray for those who serve in elected positions in our community. A Q&A session held after the breakfast concludes the program.
Every year, our Campus Life and Ministry Team engages students of St. Mark’s and Corpus Christi Colleges in this opportunity to gather with local leaders who have vast experience in prayer and action, participating in God’s work for good in our city and around the world.
“The [Catholic] Church exhorts her [faithful] that through dialogue and collaboration with the followers of other religions, carried out with prudence and love and in witness to the Christian faith and life, they recognize, preserve and promote the good things, spiritual and moral, as well as the socio-cultural values found among these [persons].”
- Pope Paul VI, Nostra Aetate [The Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions], October 28, 1965, no.2.
