Campus liturgy and prayer

Campus liturgy and praye

As a Catholic university, liturgy and prayer is at the heart of all that we do. We have a dedicated team of chaplains who, with our local Campus Ministry teams, guide and animate the prayer life of the university. All throughout the year, there are regular celebrations of weekday mass as well as times when we gather as a community to mark significant moments in the life of the Church, the university and our nation's calendar.

The Sacrament of Penance is also available before or after mass or by appointment with your local campus chaplain.

To connect with your local campus ministry team including your campus chaplain, email campusministry@acu.edu.au.

Mass on campus dependent on COVID-19 restrictions permitting.
