The Office of Spiritual and Religious Life provides a welcoming and supportive environment for spiritual and religious explorations and expressions of faith. Programs, services, and student groups bring the Lawrence community together for educational opportunities, multifaith conversations around critical topics, campus ceremonies, and religious services and celebrations.
The Center for Spiritual and Religious Life is a welcoming place for curious, intentional, respectful engagement with persons of similar, different or no religious tradition, and for quiet personal reflection and spiritual practice.
Ramadan is here and a host of services will be available during this time of fasting, prayer and reflection for the Muslim community.
1. Friday Iftars at Sabin House on Fridays at 8:30 pm. – you must register and are invited to bring ONE guest. Register here.
2. Grab & Go – at Sabin House – we will have a range of items for you to take for morning meals, beginning on Wednesday, May 16th at 5pm. New additions this year include milk for making Chai, Naan (in the freezer), and eggs – raw and boiled. Items for Grab & Go will have stickers to help identify it as separate from the food of other regular users. PLEASE be sure to keep the kitchen clean if you cook - it will continue to be shared by others.
3. Halal Chicken available for the already available Rice Bowls in Kaplan’s every day that Kaplan’s is open.
4. Halal meat available in the International line for you to pick up in a to-go box on Wednesdays and Thursdays
To Go boxes can be provided by the Office of Spiritual and Religious Life if you don’t have one. We will need 24-hours’ notice to get one and you must return it.
REMEMBER that Sabin House is available to your swipes each day until midnight. Check the monthly schedule to see when the kitchen is reserved – otherwise, feel free to COOK AND EAT IN SABIN on other evenings. We ask that you only take out the Grab & Go food.
For additional details regarding Jumma prayers at the Islamic Center, please feel comfortable reaching out to Hamza Ehsan to discuss what your options are for getting to prayers. A ride can be arranged via an LU vehicle but there must be a three day advance notice.
We wish you a fine observance. Ramadan Mubarak.
The Spiritual Lives at Lawrence Project seeks to create a video library of diverse persons from across campus talking about their spiritual and religious experiences and practices. Everyone is invited and encouraged to be a part of this experience regardless of your background or current spiritual identity. Here are some samples of what you can expect to see.
A few of our notable stories are shared and we hope you will be inspired to view and be a part of the discussion, either through a simple viewing, or perhaps through your own storytelling experience. This is an ongoing effort to tell the spiritual stories, in their own words, of the students, staff and faculty that make up Lawrence. We welcome you to visit regularly for new narratives.
