Sacrament of Reconciliation

The Sacrament of Reconciliation (also called "confession") is offered in the Manresa Den, across from the University Ministry Office, every Sunday from 8:30-8:45 p.m., before the 9 p.m. mass in Ignatius Chapel. It is also available by appointment with any priest on campus-- priests are available in  Residence Halls and across campus in various academic departments. Call our main office at 504-865-3226 to request an appointment or to be put in contact with a priest.

Anointing of the Sick

Although most students go through their entire young adult life without ever facing serious illness, some students (or staff or faculty) find themselves facing such a hardship. We offer the Sacrament of Anointing each Lent as part of a regular Sunday liturgy, and any university priest is able to offer the sacrament as needed. Contact our main office at 504-865-3226 for assistance. If you are a student, staff or faculty member in an emergency situation after normal business hours, please contact University Police at 504-865-3434 to locate a priest.
