Interfaith Chaplaincy

Office of Student Life

The Interfaith Chaplaincy is part of a Student Life collaboration focusing on issues of diversity and inclusion, including also the Multicultural Center, the Women's Resource Center, and the Center for Sexualities and Gender Diversity.  Our shared mission is the creation and maintenance of a campus community in which every person can feel safe, welcome, engaged and supported.

Religious and Spiritual Life Updates - Fall 2013

Religious and Spiritual Life Updates - Fall 2013

  

With the recent retirement of Andrea Thompson McCall, there have been some changes with USM's Religious and Spiritual Life program (previously known as the Interfaith Chaplaincy).

Previously located in the historic Deering Farmhouse at 23 Brighton Ave, the program is now housed within Portland Student Life in the Woodbury Campus Center.  The chaplains and advisors have formed the Religious and Spiritual Life Council, chaired by Rabbi Hillel Katzir and Rev. Rus Willette.  Sarah Holmes, Assistant Director for Student Life and Diversity, will be serving as the administrative liaison for the Council.

Additionally, there is a new meditation and interfaith prayer room in Portland Student Life, that students, faculty, and staff may access during regular business hours.

Any help that you could provide in helping students connect with our programs in our new home, would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Sarah Holmes, Administrative Liasion

Rabbi Hillel Katzir and Rev. Rus Willette, Council Co-Chairs
