Activities and events

The services provided by the University Chaplaincy are available to all of us who are part of the University of Navarra.

In addition to facilitating the sacramental and prayer life for those who wish to cultivate their Christian life, the University Chaplaincy supports initiatives related to other noble human interests.

To this end, we try to facilitate spaces for meeting, dialogue and prayer. It also collaborates in projects of financial aid for the most needy.

Opening of the course: Mass of the Holy Spirit

The opening ceremony of the academic year is linked to the petition of financial aid to God for the academic year that is beginning; that is why it begins with a Mass of the Holy Spirit. This tradition is maintained at the University of Navarra, and you are all invited to attend. It takes place before the Academic Act of the opening of the academic year.

banner- Miércoles de ceniza

Ash Wednesday

Lent is a time of conversion. It begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Palm Sunday, with which Holy Week begins. It is called "Ash Wednesday" because on that day a small rite is celebrated, which consists of the priest placing a little ash on the forehead or head of Christians, to remind them of the need for inner conversion. Those interested in having ashes imposed on them can do so at any regular mass on campus.

visit of the Angel of Aralar

Every year, during the week after Easter, the effigy of the archangel makes a tour of different towns, institutions and parishes in Navarre. At this time of year, instead of receiving the faithful in his sanctuary, which is located in the Aralar mountain range, it is Saint Michael who goes out to visit them. At the University visit the oratory of Amigos Building. It is a tradition, when kissing the effigy and the relic of the Cross, to make a donation to help with the upkeep of the Sanctuary.
