Lafayette College provides the opportunity for members of the College community to freely explore any religious traditions or spiritual practices of their choosing. The student body is spiritually diverse, and opportunities for worship and practice are available from a wide range of religious and spiritual traditions.

If Lafayette does not have an on-campus community to fit your needs, the chaplain will be sure to connect you with resources in the greater Lehigh Valley community.

A link to a calendar of Interfaith holidays can be found here. (Thanks to Diversity Resources for this calendar.)
