Church of the Incarnation on the University of Dallas campus

Church of the Incarnation

Students attend religious service on campus at the 500-seat Church of the Incarnation, which houses our St. Thomas Aquinas Eucharistic Chapel. Because it is centrally located and open 24 hours per day, you’re never more than a brief walk away from a quiet haven for prayer and reflection any time of the day or night.

Daily Mass

Mass is celebrated at UD twice daily on most weekdays and during the academic year, as well as once Saturday and three times on Sunday. Additional masses are offered nearby at Cistercian Abbey, Dominican Priory and Holy Trinity Seminary.

Praise and Worship

On Sunday evenings after the final Mass, students gather for an experience of praise and worship, lifting their voices to God through a combination of prayer and charismatic hymns.

Other Places of Worship

Church of the Incarnation is not the only option for worship on campus.

Cistercian Abbey accommodates monks of the Cistercian Order who operate an on-site preparatory school.

The Priory of St. Albert the Great is the residence of the Dominican Fathers who have served as UD chaplains and professors since 1958.

Holy Trinity Seminary is the place of residence for students preparing for the diocesan priesthood who attend classes at UD.
