In an effort to attend to the spiritual needs of our non-Catholic students, Campus Ministry provides a host of services and collaborates with those beyond the Catholic and Jesuit tradition. Campus Ministry also makes every effort to enable non-Catholic students to connect with local faith communities from their tradition by providing transportation to and from local churches, synagogues, and mosques.
Interfaith and Ecumenical Services
Campus Ministry, in partnership with the Office of Student Diversity Programs, the Bennett Center for Judaic Studies, and Residence Life, initiates and conducts a variety of religious experiences. Candlelight vigils and prayer services have been developed during significant religious holidays and for major annual campus-wide events, such as the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, National AIDS Awareness Day, and Earth Day. Jewish observances include a Passover Seder experience and an annual Holocaust Remembrance Service, among others.
Muslim Student Association
The Muslim Student Association (MSA) is a student-led organization committed to catering to the needs of all Fairfield University students. Rooted in the Muslim tradition, MSA provides spiritual, social, and educational gatherings that foster spiritual and personal growth and celebrate religious diversity.
For more information about MSA, please contact Chaplain Nargis Alizada at firstname.lastname@example.org.
