Interfaith Campus Ministry

Interfaith Campus Ministry at UMass Boston is here to serve the community by offering spiritual guidance and pastoral care to students, faculty, and staff. The primary aim of our campus ministry is to help students to develop intellectual understanding of their faith, and to deepen their self-knowledge and their relationship with themselves, with God, and with others. In this, our aim is to help students cultivate integration of their personhood, which is an essential quality of emotional, psychological and spiritual well-being as well as success in their studies. We encourage students and members of the UMass Boston community to be faithful to their own heritage of faith and to develop and deepen their faith journey by exploring, welcoming, and appreciating diversity.

Our campus ministry is enriched and supported by the other members of the interfaith community. Come visit the Interfaith Center Sanctuary for a quiet time of personal prayer,  just to rest for a few minutes in silence, to attend an event, meet with a chaplain, or attend a worship service.
