Public Gatherings

The following gatherings are open to all students

Roman Catholic Mass

Mass is the Roman Catholic community coming together to worship and honor God. There are many opportunities for students to be involved in the Mass: helping the priest at the altar, proclaiming the word of the Lord, distributing the Eucharist, leading the congregation in song, or providing music for the Mass. Holy Days of Obligation and Penance services also enable Culver’s Roman Catholic students, faculty, and staff to celebrate together during the school year.

Protestant Worship Services

The Protestant traditions represented by Culver students are as diverse as those of the culture at large. This service walks a middle road with readings from scripture, a sermon, and time for prayer at every Sunday service. The music is a student- and faculty-led blend of traditional hymns and praise and worship songs.

Islamic Sunday School

Each Sunday morning students gather for the opportunity to learn about Muslim life and practice. Topics include the importance of charity and the significance of religious pilgrimage. Students explore the relevance of the Qur’an and the Prophet’s life to their lives at Culver; they are also given the opportunity to connect with the Muslim community in the South Bend/ Michiana area.

Jewish Prayer

Shabbat, Hebrew for day of rest, is the most important day in the Jewish calendar. Conducted in Hebrew and English, this service includes the lighting of the Sabbath candles, the recital of Kiddush, and prayers over wine and bread and the Sabbath day itself. Discussions concerning Jewish life, practice, and world affairs will also take place as a part of this service option.

Hindu Service

In this service, students meet at the auspicious hour of 10:00 Sunday morning to recite prayers and to learn how to apply concepts like karma yoga and dharma to their lives here at Culver.

Philosophers' Café

This Spiritual Life offering enables students to reflect on their lives and the lives of others from the standpoint of various philosophical traditions, both ancient and modern.

Constructive Meditation

A service option designed to teach students the basics of mindfulness and behavioral change.
