RELIGIOUS LIFE GOALS
Connect students with the work of local congregations
Local congregations sponsor Sunday School classes and other college programs, and occasionally they host lunches and dinners for students. We serve as a resource for connecting students to a congregational home while they are here at Centre.
Develop the moral and ethical conscience of students as socially responsible citizens
CentrePeace, a group that works to educate the community on issues related to peace, human rights, social justice, immigration, war and peace, and capital punishment.
“Religion, Human Rights, and Latin America” is a series that brings speakers annually from Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Cuba, Nicaragua, or Honduras to share with us the realities of their situations.
Poverty and Homelessness Week is an annual emphasis that includes workdays in Louisville shelters, education programs, a fast for hunger, and other ways to work on hunger relief.
Promote vital religious life and greater religious understanding on campus
Services are held for Advent and Lent and Special events such as a Passover Seder and an Eid al Fitr commemorating the end of Islam’s holy month of Ramadan; and an annual interfaith dialogue series featuring speakers from Buddhist, Christian, Jain, Jewish, Hindu, and Muslim traditions. CentreFaith is a student-led campus interfaith dialogue organization that sponsors discussions, films, and events from various religious traditions throughout the year. In addition, six student-led religious groups foster fellowship and special events. See Religious Fellowship below for a list of religious groups on campus.
