Campus Ministry provides a lived pastoral dimension to the University that is holistic for all community members – built on relationships rooted in the care of the whole person including faith formation, spiritual reflection, moral and ethical development, service and social justice, vocation and dedication to spiritual life and faith practice reflective of the Catholic and Benedictine mission and identity of the University. Ultimately, as a Catholic university, we must show that our (Catholic) faith is represented in all we do to discover the wisdom of and engage in dialogue with others. Campus Ministry helps the campus community accomplish that mission.
During this time of uncertainty in our world, Campus Ministry works to foster space for peace, comfort, and community. Now, more than ever, we need your assistance in making it possible for us to celebrate Mass, walk together as a faith community, and assist those in need. Click "donate here" to help Campus Ministry continually live out its mission. Thank you.
The Liturgy is the source and summit of our Catholic faith and we seek to celebrate with you. While we hope to celebrate Mass with our greater Lisle community soon, to help keep everyone safe Mass is currently open to current BenU faculty, staff, and students only.
Mass is celebrated at St. Benedict Chapel (Kindlon Hall, Fourth Floor) during the school year.
Available before all Masses
Held in Kindlon Hall, Room 411
Those seeking the Sacrament of Reconciliation for another time may also call St. Procopius Abbey and ask for a confessor at (630) 969-6410.
