NEW BELLARMINE SHUTTLE
Every Sunday, before each parish Mass, the new Bellarmine Shuttle can pick you up at your car and bring you to the doors of the Chapel! After Mass, the Shuttle will take you back to your car.
The shuttle will run 30 minutes before the start of each Mass until 5-10 minutes after Mass begins. We encourage you to park in the Cintas C-2 parking lot and the shuttle will make continuous runs to that lot and back to the chapel. If you need to park elsewhere, just call the shuttle driver at (513) 641-8819 and they will come and pick you up.
If you would like to help by driving the shuttle once a month for the Mass of your preference, please contact Karen Brandstetter at Brandstetter@xavier.edu.
The shuttle seats five passengers and is heated for your comfort! Thanks to Xavier University and Fr. Mike Graham, S.J. for giving the parish this wonderful new shuttle to help our parishioners!
In an effort to provide better seating arrangements for parishioners with mobility issues, we have removed some of the chairs in the front row of the Chapel. The new open space is intended for the use of those with wheelchairs or other assistive devices that are difficult to fit into our standard pews. We are always looking for ways to make the chapel more accessible and we hope that this change will help.
INVITATION TO INQUIRY
Our RCIA ministry has produced this new video inviting people to “take the first step” and come to our Inquiry sessions. Several recent “neophytes” and “newly confirmed” tell the stories of what moved them to come and why they continued. Only 8 minutes long, it can now be accessed here on our parish website or on YouTube . Please take a few minutes to watch it, then consider to whom you could send the link, or refer them to our website. Help us spread this invitation!

Bellarmine Chapel is a Catholic faith community that strives to live out the teaching and example of Jesus Christ in the spiritual tradition of St. Ignatius of Loyola. We seek to be a parish where lives are transformed by the new and creative ways of the Holy Spirit. Nourished at the table of the Eucharist, we are sent on mission to make disciples, serve those in need, work for justice, and welcome all with love.
