Mass is celebrated Monday-Friday at noon throughout the semester and adhoc on school breaks. Please call the office (512.448.8499) to confirm celebration during holidays and on Holy Days of Obligation.
All are welcome to celebrate Mass each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. & 9 p.m. in Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapel unless otherwise posted above.
As a worshiping community, we are all called to actively participate in our liturgies through song, prayer, silence, and ritual action. Some are called to offer specific services to the community as lectors, ministers of communion, altar servers, music ministers, or hospitality ministers.
How can you get involved?
- Lectors proclaim the Scriptures during the Mass.
- Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion help distribute the Body and Blood of Christ during Mass.
- Altar servers assist the celebrant during Mass.
- Any singer or instrumentalist can join the choir of either Mass and practice with his/her respective choir.
- Ministers of hospitality stand at the entrance of the chapel and welcome the assembly as they gather for worship. They also collect the offering in baskets and carry them up to the altar.
Training sessions are held near the beginning of each semester. For more information, contact Josh Stagni.

Sacramental preparation is a learning process intended to help you understand more about the Catholic faith, whether you’re just asking questions, you’re interested in joining the church, or if you’re already Catholic and want to be confirmed.
- Do you recognize a need for spirituality in your life?
- Do you have questions about the Catholic faith?
- Have you been raised Catholic, but were never confirmed?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Sacramental Preparation is for you! Every Fall semester we will have weekly classes. Those who are already baptized Catholic will then be Confirmed (and receive First Communion, if needed) in December by the Bishop. Those who have been baptized in another Christian church or who have never been baptized will be fully received in the spring semester. For more information, contact Josh Stagni.
Celebrating this Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Confession) is a wonderful way to experience the loving mercy of God.
