The Interfaith Center has celebrated more than 45 years of excellence in care, hospitality, and compassion. The professional staff, along with support from the university and Student Multicultural Affairs, have maintained a strong tradition of providing space for expressions of faith through group worship, memorials, prayer, personal reflection and meditation, interfaith and inter-cultural dialog, and occasional relaxing faith-based fun, all while honoring the whole person - spirit, mind and body. The Interfaith Center is open for personal and communal meditation, quiet reflection, prayer, and worship in several traditions. All activities are held in the Interfaith Center unless otherwise noted. Contact interfaith.campusmin@umb.edu.
