Mass of the Holy Spirit

All are invited to join the Community of St. Mark’s in celebrating the opening of the academic year on the Vancouver campus at UBC.

The Mass of the Holy Spirit follows the rich Jesuit tradition of opening the academic year with a liturgy that gathers the community to thank God for the gifts of creation and salvation, and to invoke the wisdom and the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the coming year.

This Mass is a liturgical celebration for the entire Community of St. Mark’s at the University of British Columbia - students, faculty, staff and supporters of the Colleges and members of the parish community.

As we gather we call on God to send His Holy Spirit — whom Pope Francis has referred to as “the author of diversity, but at the same time the creator of unity”* to continue to be with our community in the coming year as we continue to grow and thrive as the Catholic centre of this university.

To aid in our planning for online viewing, we would benefit from your registration. All are welcome.
