De Mazenod Chapel – Roman Catholic/Ecumenical

De Mazenod Chapel is located in Laframboise Hall and is named after Eugène de Mazenod, bishop of Marseille and founder of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate. It serves as the venue for all major liturgical celebrations on the University calendar, such as the opening and closing masses, as well as the celebration of Advent and the beginning of Lent. The chapel is the largest in the University and is home to several Christian groups within the University community. Thus, the chapel hosts a wide variety of activities throughout the year.
