Liturgy and Worship at Rockhurst
Celebration of the Eucharist (the Mass) is the focal point of our faith community. At the Last Supper, Jesus told the apostles, “Do this in memory of me.” The Church has faithfully obeyed this command for two millennia. Through the Real Presence, Christ transforms us more and more into the Body of Christ. He shapes us as disciples and as ‘Men for Others.’
Mass and prayer takes many forms at Rockhurst, including:
All-school Masses on Holy Days and special occasions
Class Masses on Thursdays throughout the school year (held in Rose Theater)
Father/Son Masses on the 1st Tuesday of every month (in Sacred Heart Chapel), 7 a.m.
Prayer services for special needs and occasions
7:30 a.m. daily Mass. Optional, all are welcome (in Sacred Heart Chapel)
Sacrament of Reconciliation
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available during many retreats, during theology classes in Advent and Lent, on special occasions, or by appointment with one of the three priests on staff.
