    Places to Worship

    Prayer can take place anywhere. As you walk to class, as you are studying, as you are socializing with friends. You don’t have to be in a church to pray. Anytime you are communicating with God, you are praying.

    Mount Assisi Gardens at the Schwab Estate

    Across from the main entrance to the University are the lush gardens of Mt. Assisi. Visitors can walk the Stations of the Cross under arbors of wisteria, sit quietly on a bench and ponder the goodness of God in nature, or light a candle at one of the two shrines.The gardens of the magnificent former Charles M. Schwab Estate (now Mount Assisi Friary) are open for public viewing. The Italian Renaissance style garden was created by Charles Wellford Leavitt Jr., a pioneering landscape engineer who also designed Forbes Field.
