BC to Offer Annual Mass of the Holy Spirit Sept. 15

University President William Leahy, SJ, will be the principal celebrant and Asst. Prof. Stephen Schloesser, SJ (History), will serve as homilist at the annual Mass of the Holy Spirit on Sunday, Sept. 15, at 4 p.m. on O'Neill Plaza.

The Mass, typically celebrated at the beginning of the academic year, is a tradition at Catholic colleges and universities that harkens back to the Middle Ages.

Music will be provided by the Liturgical Arts Group, directed by Campus Minister for Liturgical Arts Katherine Leavey.

Some students, faculty and staff will participate in the Mass as lectors and Eucharistic ministers. Following the celebration all in attendance are invited to a picnic-style barbecue dinner on Bapst Lawn.
