Center for Religious & Spiritual Life

The Center for Religious & Spiritual Life is a house of hospitality, a place of inspiring and inquisitive conversation across boundaries, and the site of interfaith friendship and spiritual growth.

Welcome! Please check out all of the spring semester's Breathe Gettysburg activities! Remember that you can contact the Chaplain for an appointment. We are here for you!  See Better Together for additional details.

Here at the Center of Religious and Spiritual Life, we practice radical hospitality as we seek to promote inspiring and inquisitive conversation across boundaries and encourage interfaith friendship and spiritual growth. We warmly welcome students of all ethnicities, nationalities, sexual orientation and gender identity or expression. We welcome those of all faith traditions and no faith tradition, and we welcome those with different physical, mental and emotional abilities. We serve the Gettysburg College community by providing opportunities to explore religious and spiritual life as part of our formation in lives of meaning and purpose. We do this with a spirit of joy, gratitude, and acceptance, which we also understand to be in keeping with the inclusive tradition of Gettysburg College and the Lutheran Church.

As part of the College Life Division, we strive to provide outstanding support for students’ personal and interpersonal growth, development, and learning. Read the College Life Division Mission, Principles & Goals.

As members of the Gettysburg College community, we support the mission of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion including the College’s Land Acknowledgement Statement, Diversity Statement, Freedom of Expressions Policy, and more.

The staff looks forward to welcoming you at the Center for Religious & Spiritual Life!
