Welcome to Bellarmine Chapel (St. Robert Bellarmine Chapel), a Catholic parish located at the center of Xavier University serving the campus and parishioners from over sixty zip codes in the Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, and Southeast Indiana area.
Bellarmine Chapel is deeply committed to promoting lay leadership in our parish and has a strong tradition of action and outreach inspired by catholic social teaching. We are a growing and vibrant parish, deeply connected to Xavier University and the wider community. Our location on a university campus provides a unique opportunity to work with future leaders of the Church. Our livestream liturgies allow us to invite more people than ever to become part of this dynamic and exciting catholic community.
As a Jesuit parish, we are one of the many works connected to the Society of Jesus. Jesuits serve alongside our lay colleagues in our varied ministries. We care for the whole person: body, mind, and soul. Jesuits seek to deepen God’s life in each of us through prayer practices based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola. Our spiritual formation in the Ignatian tradition informs our outreach. It continually ignites our zeal for Bellarmine’s extensive and growing social mission.
