The rituals of Christianity go back centuries, and we believe connecting with them develops mature spirituality and vibrant faith. On these special days, all are invited to university-wide celebrations and learning opportunities. The services are ecumenical in flavor and liturgically creative in tone, focusing on the heart, soul, and mind of worship. Our students in the Exploration of Vocation and Ministry program, chancel musicians, and staff and faculty assist us in planning and leading the services.

Additionally, multiple Interfaith services are held by the Office of Spiritual Life, and our campus ministers offer religious experiences for those from the Jewish and Muslim traditions, as well as in various Christian traditions.
