Ecumenical & Interfaith

"How Can I Find God?" Lunch Series

This monthly lunch series invites members of the faculty, staff, and administration to share stories of "finding God" in their lives while also sharing a meal. Each month, a different community member shares their story, followed by an opportunity for questions, comments, and discussion. Running continuously during the academic year since September of 2001, "How Can I Find God" fosters an environment of faith-sharing among Assumption's employees.

Ignitus Praise and Worship

Praise and worship is a form of prayer that expresses love, gratitude and awe to the God who gives us everything we need. It is held every Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit. All are welcome to join in praying to God through contemporary Christian music, scripture, and quiet moments of reflection.

Bible Study

For students who wish to encounter Scripture on a deeper, more personal level, weekly Bible study opportunities are available each semester. Contact Scott Brill at x7419 for more information.
