In Memoriam

Chapel Bells Mass

The University of Saint Joseph has a tradition of remembering deceased alumni, family, and friends at the Chapel Bells Mass.

This special liturgy will be held in November 2023, in the Connor Chapel of Our Lady. During the Mass, the bells were rung in memory of those who have passed away in the previous year.

If you learn of a recently deceased alumna/us, please contact Katie Burke ’15, M’17 at [email protected] or 860.231.5364.
