Religious Life

Welcome to a new year of community and growth with the Office of Religious Life!

It is wonderful to be together on campus again, even with the Covid restrictions that keep us safe.  It is such a joy to be seeing people in person after so many months apart.  We are thankful to have each and every one of you as our friends.

Please know that if you plan to attend an event that is open to the public at Princeton University,  you must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 if over age 12.  Registration is required either at the door or in advance for contact tracing purposes and face coverings must be worn at all times by everyone over age 2.

We have planned many enriching programs for the months to come, and hope to see you there!


Diwali at the Chapel

On November 6, the Hindu Life Program hosted an evening of devotional music & dance, worship, and spiritual reflection, in celebration of Diwali, Hinduism’s Festival of Lights. This year’s Diwali at the Chapel included offerings from PU Swara, Naacho, and the students and staff of Princeton University. We are so excited to be able to share the full video recording of the evening with the ORL community!

Silent Vigil

Dear colleagues, the Office of Religious Life is creating lawn signs to be posted around Murray-Dodge Hall that honor members of the extended University community who have been lost to Covid-19 – students, staff, faculty, alumni, and their loved ones.  This link will take you to a form through which you can submit information about the person(s) you wish to honor.  Please share this link with other members of the campus community.  We will continually add to the display of signs as more submissions are received.
