Ongoing at the Center

As a display of intentional interfaith expression, the Center for Spiritual and Religious Life is home to a number of programs that allow visitors to find or express spirituality in a number of ways. A visitor to the center will not find that faith or religion becomes an obligation as they enter the space, but rather will find both traditional and contemporary ways to express the faith they already hold, or find a new unique expression of their spirituality. 

Ongoing at the center there are a number of options a visitor will find no matter the season or academic term.  Continue exploring.

Learning and Engaging

The Center for Spiritual and Religious Life regularly attempts to connect the Lawrence University community with a variety of options for expression of faith.  As well as opportunities to learn new information, there are special times with guest speakers, alumni opportunities, retreats, Intersections, or conferences that a visitor can be a part of in expression of faith and spirituality.  Continue exploring 

Unique for Spring Term

Body and Spirit

Spirituality can be more than just going to a particular place on a particular day to express a particular belief.  It is found in the everyday actions of our lives and in the course of choices that we make for ourselves.  How we listen and how we move help determine the pathways that we find ourselves on.  The mind and body link to spirituality and/or religion has a long history of intertwined connection.  Continue exploring.
