Students have sacred time/worship together in the Iliff chapel and in other campus locations in a community service designed freely from the many traditions represented in the student body. A second service using the Anglican liturgy is also open to all students each week. Services are planned and conducted by students, faculty, staff, or outside guests to provide opportunities for spiritual renewal and to help build community. Visit the Sacred Time/Community Worship schedule for more information about each service including the preacher.
Other spiritual programming includes day long retreats, yoga, embodied prayer and labyrinth walking each offered regularly throughout the year. In addition to using a dedicated multi-faith meditation room, students form prayer circles, accountability groups, and discernment groups with the assistance of the dean of the chapel.
