Spiritual Life

Searching for your purpose in life? Holy Family University is the perfect place to find it.

Take an opportunity to explore your spiritual side. Through questioning and developing your individual beliefs, you’ll learn more about your spirituality.

 

Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry is not a social club or organization, but rather, a leadership opportunity for Holy Family students to serve as leaders in Church and Society.

Campus Ministry encompasses the entire campus community and involves a myriad of community and individual services and initiatives, ranging from daily liturgy, the sacrament of reconciliation, appropriate devotional and service opportunities, and faith-based confidential counseling.

Interfaith Reflection Room

At Holy Family University, we welcome all faith traditions and encourage our community to express their beliefs in support of spiritual development and identity within the community.

Interfaith Reflection Room

Under the direction of the Vice President for Mission and Diversity, the University strives to create opportunities for religious growth and development in a welcoming and inviting atmosphere.

Holy Family University's Reflection Room (Education and Technology Center, Room 204), is a space for spiritual expression, contemplation, or prayer. 

Holy Family University is a member of the Institute on Teaching and Learning for Campus-wide Interfaith Excellence.
