Explore Your Values

The Elmhurst University Chaplaincy supports students of all faiths in their spiritual and religious development.

No matter what your religious background, you’ll find a warm welcome at the Chaplain’s office. We offer a wide range of programs and services to help you examine your own values and explore other faith traditions.

  • Worship opportunities on and off campus range from weekly services and Bible study sessions to Passover Seders and Ramadan celebrations.
  • Spiritual guidance and pastoral counseling provides support in times of personal crisis or growth. Our co-chaplains represent a wide range of religious traditions.
  • Student religious groups include the Spiritual Life Council, the Muslim Students Association, the Catholic Students Association and more.
  • Partnerships with national and international organizations like the United Church of Christ, the Interfaith Youth Core and the Parliament of the World’s Religions keep us engaged in the broader spiritual conversation.

We’d love to tell you more about how the Chaplaincy can support you in your spiritual journey. Contact our office or our co-chaplains to get started.

All are welcome here. We offer a judgment-free place where students can be true to who they are while learning to understand each other.
