Semester-Opening Mass Spring 2019 | Franciscan University of Steubenville
  • Semester-Opening Mass with Oath of Fidelity and Profession of Faith

    The opening of the semester Mass for spring 2019 will feature an unusual element.

    With the permission of Most Rev. Jeffrey Monforton, bishop of Steubenville, all faculty, staff, and administrators who have previously made the Profession of Faith and taken the Oath of Fidelity to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, will have an opportunity to renew both at this Mass. 

    Additionally, all faculty, staff, and administrators who have not previously made the public Profession of Faith or taken the Oath of Fidelity are welcome to do so. 

    Father Sean O. Sheridan, TOR, president of Franciscan University of Steubenville, will be the principal celebrant and homilist, and will lead the Profession of Faith and the taking of the Oath. 

    All are welcome to join.
