The Office of Student Affairs provides information for students of
all religions, backgrounds, and affiliations regarding local
houses of worship. Many faiths are represented through student
organizations on the various campuses.
Hillel: The Foundation
for Jewish Campus Life, at 93 College Avenue, and Chabad House, at 170
College Avenue, serve the needs of Jewish students.
to Roman Catholic students is provided by four resident chaplains from
offices and residences at 17 Mine Street. Religious services are held
regularly on the Busch, College Avenue, and Douglass campuses.
Work among Protestant students reflects the variety of concerns and
methods characteristic of the major denominations. Full-time campus
pastors serving the Methodist and Lutheran churches and the United
Campus Ministry (Baptist, Presbyterian, Reformed, United Church of
Christ) carry on many of their activities from the Christos House at
194 College Avenue. Services for Episcopal students are centered at 5
Mine Street and at St. Michael's Chapel, adjacent to the Busch campus,
under the direction of a full-time Episcopal chaplain. Christian
Science, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, Campus Crusade for Christ,
and the Navigators groups meet regularly throughout the year.
Local pastors from the African Methodist Episcopal Church, the Assembly
of God Church, Southern Baptist Church, Eastern Orthodox Church,
Religious Society of Friends, Ukrainian Orthodox Church, and the
Unitarian Universalist Association come to campus to serve the
students. The Islamic and the Buddhist faiths, as well as the Integral
Yoga Institute, also provide chaplains. As their numbers and interests
warrant, students coming from other religious traditions, foreign and
domestic, are assisted in organizing and carrying on their activities.
The university provides nonsectarian services of worship, preaching,
and music each Sunday morning in Kirkpatrick and Voorhees chapels.
