Worship and Prayer


Mass is celebrated:

at Chalon – Sunday: 7:00pm in Mary Chapel

Masses are offered each week from August - May when the College is in session.

We also have Masses on holy days such as Ash Wednesday and other important occasions such as Baccalaureate, Laurel Day and Mass of the Holy Spirit.

All are Welcome!

Bring your friends and enjoy some refreshments and good conversation after Mass! Once per month, a special blessing is offered for those celebrating a birthday. Mass at Chalon is followed by a visit to our homeless brothers and sisters in Santa Monica.

As you know, participating in Mass with your faith community is at the very heart of the Catholic way of being Christian. It is the center of the Catholic community at the Mount.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation

Confession is offered in a Reconciliation Service once or twice per year -- sometimes during Advent, and once during Lent. Occasionally when a priest is available, we provide additional opportunities to receive this sacrament, or you can request individual confession from the campus chaplain, Fr. George O'Brien or from one of the priests at Mass. You can also check with the parishes near the college for their schedule of Confessions.

Would you like to be Confirmed or receive First Communion?

Simply call or email Campus Ministry at (310) 954-4125 or (213) 477-2672. We will arrange to meet with you and help you decide on the best process to prepare you for these sacraments while you are at the college. 


For those who want to explore the possibility of becoming Catholic...

...look for the brochure racks around campus and pick up the brochure called “I’ve Been Thinking About Becoming Catholic: What Do I Do?” or call Gail Gresser in the Campus Ministry office at (310) 954-4126. She will help you explore what is best for you, at your own pace, and without any pressure.

Check out our RCIA and Confirmation page for more info.
