Chapels/Spiritual Spaces

St. Ignatius Chapel

The St. Ignatius Chapel is a wonderful spiritual resource on the University of Detroit Mercy McNichols Campus. Located in the Commerce and Finance building, the combination of contemporary and traditional architectural forms found in the chapel makes it an ideal place for worship, prayer and reflection. Catholic Mass is offered in the chapel. Please see the worship schedule for days and times. People of all faiths are welcome to the chapel and services.

Mercy Place

McAuley Chapel

Mercy Place is now the site of the University Ministry Office, located on the first floor of Shiple Hall.

Please visit us weekdays 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. It is a lovely place to study, visit, get a cup of coffee/tea, have lunch or just chat. We are a place that offers free snacks and prayer resources too.

The space features a beautiful stained glass portrayal of young people who devoted their lives to living out their faith celebrating the youth and the continued life they give to our community. Mercy Place is a gathering space for Christian and Spiritual Life Communities and other student groups as well as a place of prayer and reflection for residential students.

    Becoming Catholic and Learning about the Catholic Faith

    If you're wondering about the Catholic Church, its beliefs and practices, or are thinking about becoming Catholic, come and explore with us. For those who are not baptized, we offer RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) from end of September to Easter each year. Please meet with the director to register for this sacrament.

    If you are already Catholic, we invite you to join these sessions with those seeking the sacraments to strengthen and deepen your own knowledge and prayer life.

    We offer sessions for those interested at times convenient for all.
