Office of the Chaplain

Albright supports and encourages the exploration of religion, faith and moral values as part of a liberal arts education. The College has a longstanding affiliation with the United Methodist Church and its historical precursors and embraces their ideal of “practical divinity” – an active engagement with others that seeks justice and liberty, presumes the equal dignity of all persons, and values service. Albright is a highly ecumenical community that supports the spiritual life of those of all faiths and those having no faith tradition. Through the chaplain’s office, the College seeks to provide opportunities in which students can reflect upon religious and moral questions and issues. The cardinal virtues of respect, openness and tolerance are considered essential ingredients in any dialogue about the meaning and significance of the various religious traditions. The chaplain is also available for individual student counseling on personal and religious concerns.

Multifaith Center

Located at 1811 Linden Street, the Multifaith Center is a shared space where people of all faith traditions can gather for worship, quiet reflection, meetings and group activities. There is a large room on the first floor and several smaller rooms on the second floor.

In addition to providing a space where the many different faith traditions on campus can gather, the goal of the Multifaith Center is to encourage interaction among different religious groups so they can appreciate one another and work together. It is also used to reach students who may not have any particular interest in formal religion, but want to be part of conversations and discussions of serious topics. The goal is to be open to people of faith as well as to people of no faith, and to be a safe place to explore issues.


Student Religious Organizations

In addition to the work of the chaplain’s office, student religious groups representing the Jewish, Protestant and Catholic traditions offer a variety of means through which students can explore personal and social issues of faith. Weekly Protestant and Catholic worship services are offered on campus for students and other members of the College community.
