Names of our deceased loved ones In the month of November, we remember in prayer the members of the Mount community who have died: our staff, faculty, students, alums, friends and family members. We invite you to share the names of your deceased loved ones; we will post their names in our campus chapels. We will also remember them in a special Mass of Remembrance in November on both campuses. You are especially invited to take part in these Masses.

Reflection Group (CLC) Also known as faith-sharing or (CLC) Christian Life Community groups; they are comprised of 4-8 students or staff who gather weekly or bi-weekly to read the upcoming Sunday scripture and reflect on its meaning in their lives and in society. The meetings often include music and end with group prayer. They are an excellent way to make new friends. We also have Bible Study sessions.

Carondelet Center Adopt-A-Sister Program Carondelet Center, just down the hill from Chalon campus, is the home of many retired Sisters of St. Joseph.
