The Multifaith Council

The Multifaith Council is a collaboration of all of the Mount Holyoke Faith Groups.  Our Multifaith Chaplain, Leslie Fraser is the advisor.  Multifaith Council seeks to 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.  Multifaith 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 two- three official voting representatives to Multifaith Council, though there is no limit on how many members may participate from any faith or spiritual perspective. The group facilitates inter-faith dialogue and is a cornerstone to the welcoming community at Eliot House.

Students meet for a weekly dinner and dialogue, host conversations about sacred texts, explore religious literacy and multicultural understanding, and initiates interfaith action projects.  Multifaith Council organizes Interfaith Awareness Week once a year and does a Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat campaign on campus.  For more information, contact Leslie Fraser.
