Prayer Times and Reflections

Eucharistic Adoration – Wednesday 2:30-3:30 PM
Eucharistic Adoration is the practice of adoring or honouring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a deeper sense, it involves "the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us".

During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait", we remain "silent" in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist. By worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be.

You are invited to join us for this Holy Hour of Eucharistic Adoration every Wednesday afternoon.

The Rosary
The Rosary is a simple prayer directed to Jesus through His mother Mary. All are welcome to join us.

Tuesday and Thursday – Evening Prayer
The format is a simple style of formal prayer which includes the Gospel of the day, time for silent reflection and prayers of intercession. Prayer takes about ten to fifteen minutes. Nothing is asked of those who choose to join us apart from attending and joining us in prayer. But, our desire is to empower students and staff to become prayer leaders. So, after you feel comfortable, please ask us about leading one of the days.

Christian Meditation
Each Tuesday evening at 7:30PM a group of students and locals gathers in the Holy Spirit Chapel to enter into Christian Meditation. This is a gentle style of meditation that suits beginners or those who are experienced in meditation. Each evening includes a brief explanation and introduction to the practice of Christian Meditation. The format is mostly in silence and does not require you to present or share. This is a method of prayer that teaches you to meditate alone or with others. The evening is always finished no later than 8:30PM but the actual silent meditation lasts 20 minutes.

Stations of the Cross – Every Tuesday during Lent - 12:35pm
The Stations of the Cross have long been part of the devotional tradition of the Catholic Church. They are a re-enactment of the passion and suffering of Jesus Christ, telling the story of the final events leading up to his crucifixion and resurrection. In 1994, the late Mrs Dianne Wansbrough, one of the early Governors and a great supporter of the School of Nursing, commissioned well-known Australian artist, Peter Schipperheyn, to create a series of 14 Stations for the Fremantle Campus. Beginning in the Malloy Courtyard and ending in the University’s Chapel, the series of bronze panels follow a path through the two main courtyards.
