Programs

For programs happening this month, check out the Events. There you will find a current listing of all programs and events.

  • B.A.S.I.C (Brothers and Sisters in Christ)

    Service immersion trips take place over winter and spring breaks and allow students opportunities to travel, meet new people, build community, learn, and serve in the Vincentian sprit. If interested, please contact Ashley Gruhalla.

  • Retreats

    Give yourself the time you deserve to get away, meet new people, relax and take stock of where you are. Campus ministry-sponsored retreats allow you to do just this. Our student retreats are led by campus ministers and students. Watch for the next retreat date. For more information contact Ashley Gruhalla.

  • St. Vincent de Paul Society

    Participation with the St. Vincent de Paul Society involves students in the legacy of a man whose life teaches us that it is through our love of the poor that we can truly see the face of God. Regular meetings, community service projects, and prayer are important to the members of this organization. For more information and how to get involved with SVDP contact Ashley Gruhalla.

  • Bible Study and Faith Sharing

    A great way to learn more about the Sacred Scriptures and to improve your prayer life is to become a regular member of a small group faith sharing or Bible study group.

    This semester, Fr. Bill Allegretto is facilitating a Bible Study in Alumni Chapel. See the Events page for details.

    Students from all faith perspectives are welcome. All one needs is an open mind, a caring heart, and an interest in growing in your own faith tradition. 

  • Taizé Prayer

    A prayer service set in a candle-lit chapel, provides an evening of ecumenical prayer. Taizé combines simple, meditative music, scripture, and silence that allow participants to connect with God in their own unique way. All are welcome.

    Taizé Prayer Services take place twice a month. For dates and times, see the Events page.

  • Mass Ministries

    Campus Ministry welcomes readers and Eucharistic ministers to serve at Masses. Those wishing to be trained should stop by the Office of Campus Ministry, call us at 716.286.8400, or email Kristina Daloia.

    • Eucharistic Ministers
    • Lectors
    • Musicians and Choir Members
    • Hospitality Ministers
  • Music Ministry

    Our Eucharistic celebrations need music to lift the heart and spirit to be heard and sung well. To truly celebrate our faith, choir members, cantors, and instrumentalists are essential. The Alumni Chapel Choir is open to anyone who likes to sing or can play an instrument. The 11 a.m. Mass features familiar hymns from the Word & Song hymnal, while the 7 p.m. Mass blends traditional pieces with contemporary praise and worship music. For more information, please contact Kristina Daloia.
