Weddings at Duquesne

Either bride or groom must be a current student, an alum, or an employee of the University.

Either bride or groom must be Roman Catholic.

If either party has been married previously, there is paperwork that must be in place before the wedding can be scheduled.
The suggested donation for the Chapel is $200.

This does not cover the cost of musicians.
Since marriage is a sacrament, its music is considered sung prayer and should therefore be appropriate for a liturgy.

You may contact Debbie Kostosky at (412) 396-6021 or kostosky@duq.edu to obtain contact information for pastoral musicians.

You may also contact the Mary Pappert School of Music for contact information regarding qualified student musicians or hire qualified pastoral musicians by contacting the Mary Pappert School of Music at (412) 396-6080.

You are also welcome to bring in qualified pastoral musicians to provide the music for your wedding.
Weddings are on Saturdays at 11 AM, 1 PM, or 3 PM.

You can access the chapel 1/2 hour before the ceremony. The entire ceremony (including photographs) may only last 90 minutes after the scheduled start time of the wedding. For this reason, there is to be no receiving line.

For more information or to book your wedding please contact Debbie Kostosky at kostosky@duq.edu

Reconciliation

Confession is not difficult. Yet, if we want to experience the sacrament in the most profound way, we must prepare by placing ourselves in the presence of God and praying for the wisdom, insight and humility to reflect honestly on our life.

Catholics seek healing and forgiveness through repentance and a resolve to change those parts of their lives that do not foster relationship with God and God's people. This reflection should involve searching one's thoughts, words and actions - an examination of conscience.

The sacrament is offered daily at 11:30 am in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit or by appointment.
