Chaplains and Prayer Spaces

Reflection and Spiritual Connection.

Chaplains and Prayer Spaces Banner


The Chaplain program is a long-standing collaboration between of the Department of Residential Life and Campus Ministry. Both Jesuits and lay ministers live among our students in the residence halls, serving as additional supports and resources for our students. They participate in meetings with hall staff and hall government, offer programs to promote hospitality and spirituality, organize Catholic masses in the hall chapels, and are available to be a conversation partner for students.
