Prayer is one of the four pillars of the Dominican Order and is a significant part of life at Dominican University. Come experience communal prayer and contemplation with other members of our community as we learn and grow in faith and understanding together. Everyone belongs!

Sacrament of Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered regularly on campus with dates and times posted on Campus News and in Rosary Chapel. If you would like more information about receiving the sacrament, please visit University Ministry.

Sacrament of Confirmation and Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

Students, staff, and faculty who are interested in deepening their Catholic identity through the sacrament of Confirmation are invited to visit with a University Ministry staff member. Together we can arrange a process that will suit your specific needs as you prepare to receive this Sacrament while attending Dominican University. Those who are interested in formally joining the Catholic community or who have already been baptized into the Catholic Church and would now like to receive the Sacraments of First Eucharist and Confirmation, are invited to visit with a University Ministry staff member. The process of RCIA, or the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, may be the right fit for you. Through this process of initiation, you will journey with others as you explore, learn about, and are formed in the faith, the community, and the mission of the Catholic Church.

Interfaith Prayer Spaces

There are several Interfaith Prayer Spaces available for use at Dominican University. The Main Campus Interfaith Prayer Room is located on the second floor of Mazzuchelli Hall, adjacent to the Noonan Reading Room and Rosary Chapel. The Priory Campus Interfaith Prayer Room is located on the first floor just inside the Main Entrance on the left. There is an additional prayer room inside the Ministry Center in Mazzuchelli 298 E. These interfaith spaces are open and available to all students, staff, and faculty for personal prayer, meditation, and reflection.

Liturgical Ministries

Liturgy at Dominican University is driven and facilitated by our students. Get involved in our prayer life through leadership in art & environment, hospitality, or by becoming a Eucharistic minister, lector, cantor or sacristan. Dominican University is the home of a robust, diverse liturgical choir as well. If you are interested in finding your place in a particular ministry or would like to learn more about how you can contribute to the liturgy, please contact University Minister for Liturgy & the Arts, Amy Omi.
