Always a celebration, never a requirement.

At Elms College, students of all faith traditions are welcome to develop and engage in a diverse spiritual community. If you are looking to connect with others on a religious level, we offer a wide range of events and activities that encourage discussion of the divine. If you prefer to practice your faith more privately, we have a number of spaces around campus that are perfect for individual reflection and prayer. Whatever role spirituality plays in your life, you have many opportunities to grow in your faith at Elms.

The Office of Campus Ministry serves to enrich the spiritual lives of all students. Have a passion for service? Sign up for the Dorothy Day Program! Want to further the mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph? Participate in a week long mission trip to a variety of places.

The Sisters of St. Joseph work to “unite neighbor with neighbor and neighbor with God without distinction.” How will you interpret this calling?
