We are a distinctly Catholic law school with a strong ecumenical component, inviting students of all faith traditions to integrate their personal and professional values in their search for justice. Our community includes Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, and non-believers. Within our walls, all are welcome. Our faculty members challenge students to consider how their deepest commitments can and should shape their professional identities. We hold a daily Mass in our chapel, host weeklyfellowship gatherings for Christians of all denominations, offer yoga and meditation, and provide spaces for individual prayer and reflection.
The Reflection Period
The School of Law sets aside noon-12:30 p.m. each day as a time of personal reflection. Mass is celebrated daily in our chapel during this time. There also are weekly Protestant worship periods and Bible study offered during this time, and yoga is typically offered one or two days a week. Students may also use the time for individual reflection.
There are also occasional midday reflections on themes ranging from Spirituality and Social Justice to Finding God in All Things. Student groups like the St. Thomas More Society and the Christian Legal Society also offer periodic opportunities for faith sharing.
