Spiritual and Religious Life
Practice. Music. Community. Justice. Wellbeing.
The Office of Spiritual & Religious Life promotes student well being and thriving, and the vital transformations that take place for students in a liberal arts context. We engage students in programs that connect them to 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 to engage faculty and staff to promote spiritual and ethical well being across campus.
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.
We create spaces for communities of hospitality and inclusion that honor distinct traditions and perspectives while promoting respect, appreciation, and common values.
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.
We advocate the practice of spiritual, religious, intellectual, healthy relationships, and physical health so that all persons in community may thrive.
