About Us

Class of 2024, we can’t wait to meet you! Fill out this form so that we can get to know you a little bit!

Regarding the current COVID-19 Pandemic (Updated 4/11/2021):

 We are back to Livestreaming our Masses and offering Communion on campus again! Here is the Youtube link for the livestream, which goes live at 4:00PM on Sunday, April 11th: https://youtu.be/7qltpJlJMO4
In addition to livestreaming on youtube, we will also be livestreaming on our IG page, @wakeforestcatholics
As always, here are the guidelines for receiving Communion below, and because we are in Campus Operating Status Yellow, we ask that you are extra attentive to maintaining a distance of 6 feet from one another while receiving Communion:
-Communion will be available on the Patio of the Campus Ministry Offices in Kitchin Hall (directly across from the Sutton Center/Reynolds Gym), from 4:40PM – 5:10PM.
-Communion will be available from approximately 4:40PM – 5:10PM – because we want to make sure there is plenty of space for people to maintain a safe distance of 6 feet from one another, we encourage you to join us at some point within that 30 minute window of time – you do NOT have to arrive at 4:40PM on the dot in order to receive Communion.
– Please approach the Campus Ministry Patio by walking down the short stairway from the sidewalk, and keep your mask on until you are about to consume Communion.  Once Fr. Marcel has given you Communion, please step at least 6 feet away from him before you remove your mask to consume Communion.  Once you have received Communion, you may exit the Patio by following the handicap ramp leading back to the sidewalk.  We will have hand sanitizer available before you receive Communion.
– At this point, due to University policy relating to Campus Visitors (found here: https://ourwayforward.wfu.edu/policies/ ), we can only provide on-campus Communion for WFU Students, Faculty, and Staff who have a DeaconOne Card.  If you do not have a Wake Forest ID and would like to attend Mass, we encourage you to attend Mass at St. Leo’s, or any of the wonderful Winston Salem parishes.  St. Leo’s Mass schedule can be found here:  https://www.stleocatholic.org/
Due to adjustment to University policy that may occur throughout the semester, we anticipate that there may be changes in how Mass and Communion are offered on campus – as decisions are made, we will make sure to keep you informed here, on our calendar, and on our Instagram account (@wakeforestcatholics).  Additionally, you are welcome to email Liz (orrej@wfu.edu) to request being added to our email listserv, where we will also send out announcements about our events and Masses!

 The Bishop of Charlotte has waived the obligation of the faithful to attend Sunday Mass until further notice.  Additionally, all public Masses where the anticipated attendance of the Mass is more than 100 people have been cancelled until further notice, in compliance with the Executive Order issued by NC Governor Roy Cooper on Saturday, March 14th, 2020.

Though our Masses and programs have been suspended for the time being, Liz and Fr. Marcel are both available to meet for Spiritual Direction, pastoral conversations, or simply presence in this uncertain time.  Fr. Marcel is also still available to hear confession.  Please feel free to reach out to Fr. Marcel at @amadimc@wfu.edu or Liz at orrej@wfu.edu if you would like to make an appointment.

Wake Forest Catholic Community is a sponsored ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Charlotte.  By providing our students with opportunities to participate in the sacraments, to build community, and to explore and express their faith through service, retreats, and small faith sharing communities, we strive to create a welcoming and dynamic parish-like community on our campus.

Please note – we do not celebrate Mass on campus between Commencement (May) and Orientation (August)
