Wednesday Night: Eat, Pray, Talk
Every Wednesday night that school is in session, everyone is invited to gather for an evening of food, fellowship, and prayer. We will gather in the Alumni House at 6:30 for pizza and conversation. We end the evening with a short worship service with communion. EVERYONE is welcome at the service, whether you come as a member of a faith tradition, someone questioning or unsure, or whether that particular night you just happen to need sustenance. You will find rest and restoration there; regardless of your sexuality, race, creed, or nationality you will be welcomed and accepted, just as you are.
Tuesday Mornings: Centering Prayer for Body and Mind
Every Tuesday morning that class is in session, we will gather at Glatfelter Lodge for a 20-minute meditative service, beginning at 7:30 am. This is a time for contemplation, and a meditation for the body and mind; a time to give thanks for the day, cultivate mindfulness, and ask for strength and peace for what lies ahead. Everyone is welcome as we come together to begin the day!
Sunday Mornings: Quaker Prayer Meeting
The Quaker community (Society of Friends) also holds a prayer meeting in Glatfelter Lodge at 10:30 on Sunday mornings.
Sunday Evenings: Catholic Mass
This ministry is provided by the Catholic Campus Ministry team, which consists of a Roman Catholic priest and Campus Ministry Associate. Mass is celebrated on Sundays at 5 pm in Christ Chapel when school is in session.
Shabbat and Jewish Holidays
Hillel, Jewish Life on Campus, schedules Shabbat services, High Holiday services, and other Jewish holiday services throughout the Jewish calendar.
We welcome students of all beliefs and practices. This includes those who are searching, as well as those who do not believe. We cherish faith and freedom in inquiry. We serve the Gettysburg College community by providing opportunities to explore religious and spiritual life issues as part of our formation in faith. We do this with the spirit of openness, reason, and tolerance, which we also understand to be in keeping with the inclusive tradition of Gettysburg College and the Lutheran community.
