Office of Religious Life
The Office of Religious Life organizes religious programs and events at the university. The four staff religious leaders (Catholic priest/chaplain, Jewish rabbi, Protestant chaplain and Muslim religious life coordinator) oversee their respective communities at Quinnipiac. They coordinate worship services, weekly prayer and sacraments; and they provide spiritual and pastoral counseling. In addition, the office’s Center for Religion offers programs designed to raise the level of religious literacy on campus, as well as furthering students’ ethical and moral development. The center is a place for students of all religious traditions to build interpersonal connections; and it is designed to foster a greater sense of community cohesion. For those students belonging to a community not represented on campus, the office assists them in making connections with local religious resources. The Office of Religious Life serves as a resource to the university on religious issues, and provides outreach to anyone with questions about religion, ethics and spirituality. The staff members work to raise the visibility of religion on campus through tradition-specific as well as interfaith programming, and when required, provide a religious presence at university events.
