Every Sunday during the academic year, we hold a Roman Catholic Mass at 6:30 pm in Abbey Memorial Chapel. This is a joy-filled community event, presided over by Father Warren Savage and accompanied by the Abbey Singers, who are directed by Mark Gionfriddo from the music department.
In addition, the Catholic community provides a variety of spiritual, educational and social events throughout the year, which are open to everyone. Whether it is a conversation on social issues, a discussion about theological, biblical or contemporary issues from a Catholic perspective, our annual spring retreat or making fudge for a fundraiser, Catholic events are enjoyable and participatory. There are plenty of opportunities for faith exploration and sharing as well as leadership roles on the Newman Student Leadership Board.
Leslie Fraser is advisor to the Protestant community.
Mount Holyoke’s Protestant Christian group is composed of students from many different denominations: Baptists, Congregationalists, Episcopalians, Lutherans, Methodists, Pentecostals, Presbyterians and more. All are welcome to come and study the Bible, build relationships and explore the similarities and differences between our various Christian traditions. Stop by Eliot House on the first floor (bottom level) to introduce yourself to Leslie, or email her.
Mount Holyoke Christian Fellowship is a formally organized Protestant group on campus.
