Mass of the Holy Spirit – Sept. 11, 2024

Sep 11, 2024

All are invited to join in celebrating the opening of the academic year on the Vancouver campus at UBC.

The Mass of the Holy Spirit follows the rich Jesuit tradition of opening the academic year with a liturgy that gathers the community to thank God for the gifts of creation and salvation, and to invoke the wisdom and the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the coming year. 

Mass will be celebrated by Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Vancouver, and Reverend Dr. Robert Allore, SJ, Chaplain of UBC and Pastor of St. Mark’s Parish, and Reverend Nick Meisl, faculty member of the Colleges.

Light refreshments will be served after Mass.
