Religious Affairs

The Office of Student Affairs provides information for students of all religions, backgrounds, and affiliations regardinglocal 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.

A ministry 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.
