Prayer and Worship

Students of all faith traditions are welcome at every form of worship offered by Campus Ministry.

Join a praying and worshipping community that is focused on students. Assumption promotes a vibrant campus worshipping community centered around the Eucharist, the source and summit of Christian life. Additional opportunities include Mass, Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, Reconciliation, Charismatic Praise, Candlelight Prayer, and Adoration.  Students serve as greeters, altar servers, lectors, Communion ministers, and music ministers. Campus ministers connect students from other churches and faith traditions with nearby worshipping communities in Worcester.
