Wondering about Observance and where to experience Mass?

Observance practices in the Christian tradition include fast days, sabbath days, and special worship. Chaplain Stone is available for conversation and support as you integrate college life with these practices. Roman Catholic Mass opportunities are abundant in St. Paul. Students regularly meet up and attend Mass together, weekly!
