Practice. Music. Community. Justice. Wellbeing.

The Office of Spiritual & Religious Life engages students with their spiritual and religious heritages. We invite them to learn about a diversity of practices and traditions to grow their understanding of the world. We connect students to each other and to communities and needs beyond themselves and our campus. We work collaboratively with faculty and staff to promote spiritual and ethical well being across campus.

Practice
We provide opportunities for regular religious observance and spiritual practice and for moral and ethical reflection and engagement among students, across campus, and to the wider community. Distinct practices at Trinity include the historic Episcopal tradition of the college, Roman Catholicism, Jewish life, Zen Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, and interfaith cooperation.

Music & the Arts
Extraordinary music making, both in concerts and services, enriches the life of the college and the wider Hartford community.

Community
We create spaces for communities of hospitality and inclusion that honor distinct traditions and perspectives while promoting respect, appreciation, and common values.

Justice
We endeavor to live out our beliefs and values through action centered on justice. Whether through advocacy, community service, immersion learning, or direct action, we develop timely, meaningful opportunities for engagement among students, faculty, and staff.

Wellbeing
We advocate the practice of spiritual, religious, intellectual, healthy relationships, and physical health so that all persons in community may thrive.

Celebrating 40 Years of Music

Robert Edward Smith, the longtime composer in residence of the Trinity College Chapel, has served the institution for more than four decades. The July 10 Summer Music Series concert will include the premiere performance of his piece, “Trio d’anches.”

Behind the Soundtrack of Trinity

It would be difficult to find a member of the Trinity College community who has never heard the bells of the historic Trinity Chapel. Ellen Dickinson—musician, composer, and college carillonneur at Trinity—is the woman behind that music and has served the college for a decade.
