As a University in the Catholic and Jesuit traditions, Saint Joseph’s celebrates religious diversity and promotes intellectual, ethical, and spiritual understanding. That commitment to exchanging diverse ideas reflects in the range of spaces on campus for meditation and religious worship. These interfaith spaces provide a home for many forms of worship and community building.
The Saint Joseph’s community is welcome to use the interfaith prayer room for prayer, reflection and meditation. It is located on the 2nd floor of Campion Student Center, (Room 209/207) outside of the CID. It can be accessed by swipe card and is open during the same hours that the Campion Building is open. Prayer mats are also available for use. Please remove your shoes before entering the room. If additional interfaith prayer space is needed, please contact Beth Ford in Campus Ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org about reserving a space in Wolfington Hall for particular days and times.
Students are encouraged to participate in interfaith events to grow in appreciation of their faith traditions and gain a better understanding of others’ faith traditions. For more information, contact email@example.com.
Each year in January, the University sponsors an interfaith prayer service in which members of various faith traditions share the beauty of their own religious practices. All are encouraged to come and participate in this uplifting community event.
