Interfaith Chaplaincy

Space for Prayer, Meditation, Reflection

The Office of Religious & Spiritual Life features a space set aside for prayer, meditation, or quiet reflection by individuals or groups.  Cushions, table space, and a few chairs and prayer rugs are available for use; a compass is available and the floor has been marked to indicate which direction is East (facing towards Mecca).

Early afternoons, Monday through Thursday, we reserve the space for our Muslim students to observe Selat prayers.

Other groups use the space by arrangement; see the calendar of opportunities for more information or to contact a group convenor.

Providing safe, private space for spiritual and religious activities is one of the simplest but most vital forms of support USM offers its students.

The space may be used on a drop-in basis, or reserved by emailing interfaith@usm.maine.edu or calling 228-8093.
