    Immaculate Conception Chapel was established to serve the sacramental and spiritual needs of the Saint Francis University community. In addition to regular celebration of the Eucharist and sacrament of reconciliation, the University is normally allowed to celebrate the sacrament of matrimony for alumni and other members of the University community, with permission from the rector of our local parish, the Basilica of St. Michael the Archangel. During Holy Week, the Chapel may also celebrate the sacraments of initiation - baptism, confirmation, and first Eucharist - if there is sufficient student interest and preparation.

    Infant baptisms and funerals are rarely celebrated in Immaculate Conception Chapel, as the proper place for celebrating these liturgies is in a parish.  Please contact your local parish for these liturgical services.

    Sunday offertory contributions are restricted and used to pay for ongoing and future capital improvements to the Immaculate Conception Chapel. Checks payable to “Saint Francis University” will be processed by the Advancement Office, and acknowledged in a letter from the Advancement Office. These letters should be kept for tax return purposes.
