Ex Corde Ecclesiae

FROM THE HEART OF THE CHURCH

The Catholic Faith is the heart and soul of 鶹ý, and we will do everything possible to help our students become the next generation of great saints! At 鶹ýyou’ll nourish and vivify your Catholic life with access to daily Mass, Confession, spiritual direction, daily rosary and so much more. Form your mind, build lasting friendships and enliven your faith at AMU!

MASS TIMES AND CONFESSION SCHEDULE

At AMU, our students’ spiritual welfare is our top priority. The Holy Eucharist and the Sacrament of Confession were given to us by Our Lord so that we may stay close to him and save our souls. That’s why we ensure that as a student at AMU, you’ll be able to attend daily Mass and frequent confession as often as you like.

DISCOVER DIVINE LOVE THROUGH PERPETUAL ADORATION

鶹ý is exceptionally blessed to offer students Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament 24 hours a day. Located in the east wing of AMU’s Canizaro Library and immediately across Ave Maria Boulevard from the Oratory, the Martha J. Burke Adoration Chapel is a place to find peace, joy and love in the Eucharistic presence of our Savior.

GO ON RETREAT - FOLLOW CHRIST INTO SILENCE AND PRAYER

Each year at 鶹ýwe offer two primary retreats for our students following the themes ENCOUNTER and TRANSFORM. On the fall retreat, you’ll discover or rediscover a living relationship with Christ; on the spring retreat, you’ll focus on nurturing that relationship and allowing the love of Christ to transform your life.
