The college life brings many new experiences! We want to invite you to new friendships and to build a more formative experience. You have found your new community - WELCOME!
Every fall, we hold our annual registration which we encourage students to renew. If you would like to sign-up for more information this summer, we will add you to our email list.
As Catholic Campus Ministry follows all Miami University, state of Ohio and local city of Oxford guidelines to ensure the public health of our students, we are on a virtual policy at this time. Accordingly, our student lounge, all rectory basement areas, and the parish center are closed until further notice. Upon re-opening, we will require students to mask up, do social distancing, and limit our group size. Be sure you are feeling well and please take your temperature and not assume it is the Midwestern allergy season. Thank you for seeing the best ways to keep others around you safe and healthy.
As with any transition, there are challenges upon moving to a new town and college. We're here to welcome you and answer any questions. Please start with our Campus Minister and Executive Team to assist you!
As you learn your way around, take a closer look! Acclimate yourself to St. Mary Church, the Parish Center, and the BASIC student lounge.
Feel free to follow along on our home page for all parish updates and on the HUB for both parish and campus ministry calendars. The HUB is on your "My Miami" page.
For some of our events, there may be an occassional sign-up. This is found on our forms page. Likewise, our virtual links are found on our applications and forms page. All one-stop accessibility in attending our virutal activities! Also, remember to sign-up for our weekly newsletter - contact Matthew!
In Person Masses
In person Masses are on Saturdays at 3pm and Sundays at 9am.
Reservations are required. For Saturday and Sunday Masses, use this link: http://tiny.cc/StMaryMasses . You can reserve for the coming weekend or the following weekend, but to share the opportunity to attend, please don’t sign up for both.
It is our hope to have in-person daily Mass on as many days as possible during Lent, but the schedule is dependent on Fr Jeff’s recovery and must be kept flexible. Check the parish web site to see which weekdays will have Masses. Daily Masses are planned for 9:30am.
Social distance seating in our church allows for about 50 people per Mass. The seating spots are 6’ apart, but people will pass within 6’ of each other during seating, communion and exiting.
All are reminded that the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains in effect. In that the pandemic has only become more dangerous, we urge that you take all precaution about attending.
If you come to Mass:
Make a reservation. At this point, don’t reserve two weeks in a row. Based on demand, this may change.
Arrive between 15 minutes and 5 minutes before Mass.
Use the High Street door and check in with the Greeters.
Wear a face covering that keeps your mouth and nose covered.
Keep social distance as much as possible, but be aware that people are likely to pass by you within 6ft.

We invite you to join in and make new friends. From social to spiritual activities - all are welcome, no matter what faith. We who have sweet fellowship together! (Psalm 55: 14) During the Pandemic we offer many virtual opportunities and plan some in-person events after everyone has returned to campus.
