Office of the Chaplains

Religious and Spiritual Life

Welcome! The Office of the Chaplains equips students to connect faith and spirituality with learning and life so that they will be prepared to live and lead in a religiously diverse world. Rooted in the tradition and values of Lutheran higher education, we support diverse spiritual and religious practices, promote theological and vocational exploration, and foster interfaith cooperation in service to the common good on campus and in the greater community.

The Chaplains engage in conversations with the Gustavus community regarding vocation, faith questions, relationship struggles, crisis situations, and the daily joys and sorrows of life. These conversations happen in classrooms, on retreats, during and after worship, in the Marketplace, during discussions, on walks in the Arboretum, in Bible studies, during service in the St. Peter community, and in many other ways and places.

The Chaplains' Office is located on the first floor of Old Main.
