ABOUT THE OFFICE OF RELIGIOUS LIFE...

The Office of Religious Life strives to encourage spiritual growth and maturity within Princeton University in ways that are appropriate for each community member: to promote empirical religious literacy in preparation for citizenship in globalized, multi-religious societies; to equip members of the University community with the ability to critically analyze religious traditions while practicing them; and to teach respect to practicing and non-practicing community members.

WORSHIP & CONCERTS IN THE UNIVERSITY CHAPEL ...

The soaring arches of the Princeton University Chapel have summoned countless people to come inside to find faith, peace, inspiration, challenge, and courage. The gathering for worship that, in 1746, resulted in the founding of what is now Princeton University is the same community that convenes each Sunday morning to pray for a Spirit and to depart for service to humanity. It is in the Chapel that the University comes together as a community. This is true at Opening Exercises, Baccalaureate, and annual memorial services for alumni and staff of the University, and numerous concert performances every year.

Our list of religious holidays is for the 2017-18 academic year and is from the New Jersey Department of Education website.
