The Office of Spiritual Life is located in the Interfaith Sanctuary, a safe place for people of all beliefs to feel welcome and at home. At Saint Rose, our roots have taught us that spirituality—in prayer and meditation, in personal development, in compassion, in acts of service and justice—enriches the college experience beyond measure. For that reason, the Office of Spiritual Life provides a wealth of programs, all designed to help you develop as a whole person, grow spiritually, foster your leadership potential, and see and serve the needs of others. We offer opportunities for:

  • Praying, meditating and practicing yoga
  • Exploring faith and the “big questions”
  • Participating in community service and pursuing social justice
  • Hearing wisdom from distinguished scholars in interfaith lectures
  • Serving others on service trips to Washington DC, New Orleans, San Francisco and Guatemala
  • Engaging in retreats, attending Mass, and other social and faith based activities
  • Get involved in groups and activities related to spirituality and well-being—see the list of options below
