The Interfaith Council

Our Multifaith Chaplain, Leslie Fraser is the advisor for the Interfaith Council.

The Interfaith Council is a collaboration of all of the Mount Holyoke Faith Groups. We provide a venue for discussion across lines of faith and belief practices and fosters a greater appreciation of the many faith groups represented on Mount Holyoke's campus. We facilitate interfaith dialogue and are a cornerstone to the welcoming community at Eliot House.

Interfaith Council represents students from all faith orientations. Non-Religious Life faith groups as well as individuals not associated with a faith group on campus may join as well. Each of our faith communities sends up to three official voting representatives to Interfaith Council, though there is no limit on how many members may participate from any faith or spiritual perspective.

We meet for a weekly dinner and dialogue in the small dining hall in the South Rocky dorm Wednesdays at 5:30 pm. We host conversations about sacred texts, explore religious literacy and multicultural understanding, and initiate interfaith action projects. In the Fall, Interfaith Council organizes a Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat campaign on campus.
