Help gain a deeper understanding of the Word of God by spending time in prayer and worship with your fellow students.


Sacred Heart of Mary Chapel (Main Campus)

Centrally located on the Main Campus, the Sacred Heart of Mary Chapel is a place of quiet prayer and sanctuary in the midst of a bustling campus. Daily and Sunday Masses are celebrated here, as well as twice weekly opportunities for confession. In addition to daily Mass and confessions, the chapel is open from 7 a.m. till 11 p.m. or by request after hours.

Located on the 5th floor of Marymount's space in the building at 4040 Fairfax Drive. This chapel serves as a quiet place for personal prayer in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Masses are celebrated in this chapel on Thursdays at noon, as well as on Holy Days of Obligation. All are welcome. Beginning Fall 2017, there will be a Chapel in the new Ballston Building on the 2nd floor! More information to come on this soon...

Located both on the 1st floor of the Lodge on Main Campus, as well as the 5th floor of the 4040 Fairfax Building. The meditation rooms are available at all hours. Featuring comfortable chairs, soft lighting, large pillows, and prayer rugs, it is meant as a place for private/personal meditation. It is open to students of all faiths. Qurans and Bibles are also available for your use.

Weddings, Baptisms & Funerals

Each of these sacramental/liturgical events require advance planning and discussion, as they are not normally celebrated in our chapels. All these are to be planned and discussed well in advance with the Marymount University Chaplain.

  • Weddings are permitted for full time students, with some exceptions for recent graduates.
  • Infant baptisms are not normally celebrated here, taking place instead at a person’s home parish. Adult baptisms are permitted for those participating in the Campus Ministry RCIA program.
