Monthly Calendar of Events

A Community of Reflection & Action

Nazareth College has long recognized the importance of spiritual growth in the development of the whole person. The Nazareth community is committed to fostering an environment in which individuals are encouraged to explore their own spirituality, dialogue with others, and engage the world around them.

Yoga ClassReflection

The Center for Spirituality encourages reflection on personal beliefs; it assists students to discover and develop their spiritual identity within an enthusiastic and supportive community.

Meditation and Worship

CFS staff and student leaders collaborate with the Nazareth community to provide ministry and educational opportunities for individuals from various faiths, traditions, and beliefs.


Interfaith programs such as the religious diversity dinner, and ecumenical/interfaith programs build relationships and encourage communication and solidarity among community members.

Social ActionSocial Justice

Responding to the needs of our local, regional, national, and global communities, CFS empowers students to integrate their quest for personal development with the broader community through advocacy and service.


CFS staff provides a welcoming and hospitable presence. They are available for pastoral and crisis counseling. CFS maintains the Paul and Judy Linehan Chapel, a community room, the universal prayer space, and a meditation room for personal and group prayer and reflection.


To strengthen the sense of family within our campus community, CFS sponsors campus-wide celebrations, memorials, and gatherings in response to current events and holidays, including Veterans' Day, Thanksgiving, World Aids Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Interfaith memorial service, and the baccalaureate service.
