Worship on Campus

St. John's is the center of Creighton University's vibrant campus community. At significant times of the year, the Creighton Community comes together in St. John's to give thanks for our gifts, to celebrate our accomplishments, to support one another in times of loss, and to welcome new members. Faith communities on campus also gather regularly for prayer together.

Many students, faculty, and staff of different faiths find St. John's a quiet sacred space during the days and nights. We encourage all members of the Creighton community to find time for quiet reflection and prayer!

Catholic Mass

The Creighton University community is invited to participate in annual liturgies, such as the Welcome Week Mass, Mass of the Holy Spirit, and the Baccalaureate Masses. Regular Mass times on campus can be found here. Catholic students, faculty, and staff make St. John's their home. They serve as musicians, lectors, liturgical assistants, extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion, sacristans, and greeters at our regular weekend liturgies as well as at special university liturgies.

Protestant Sunday Worship

Protestant students have the opportunity to form a worship community every Sunday, when classes take place on the following Monday, at 8:30 P.M. in the chapel of Lower St. John's.  Students are invited to be part of the music ministry, be a reader, or help with communion.  Area pastors of mainline Protestant churches come to preside at these liturgies.  Dr. Ashley Hall, professor of theology and Associate Pastor of Kountze Memorial Lutheran Church, is the main presider and also meets regularly with a group of students to form the Lutheran Campus Ministry Group here on campus.

Eucharistic Adoration

Come join other Creighton students for Eucharistic Adoration on Monday evenings, 9:00 p.m. in St. John's Church.

Liturgy of the Hours

Evening prayer, or vespers, is held at St. John's during Advent and Lent. In these Christian liturgies, we simply give our time and praise to God through prayer and song. Campus Ministry also hosts evening prayer in the style of Taizé once a month during the academic year. See the Taizé Prayer section of the website for more information!
