Abbey Interfaith Sanctuary

Across the green from Eliot House is the Abbey Interfaith Sanctuary, which is open to students of all faith backgrounds (and no faith as well) for reflection, journal writing, meditation, and walking the sacred labyrinth. Formerly a small Christian prayer chapel converted by students, staff, and faculty over a two-year period, Abbey Interfaith Sanctuary holds sacred objects and texts from the different faith groups represented on campus. Each week, Abbey Interfaith Sanctuary is filled with the words, songs, and shared silence of the Mindfulness Meditation, the Unitatarian Universalists service and many informal visits by individuals and groups in search of a peaceful moment away from the busyness of everyday life.
