The Office of the University Chaplain and Interfaith Belonging is committed to creating safer and inclusive spaces that encourage all religious expressions and exploration. We strive for our students, faculty, staff, and local partners to have brave conversations around the topics of spirituality and social justice as well as personal and collective growth. It is our goal to curate community in such a way where every person feels like they belong. Come and journey with us as we think out loud together!

Jessie Ball duPont Chapel

The Jessie Ball duPont Chapel stands beside the library as a reminder of the spiritual nature of academic values, and to emphasize the connection of head and heart. The chapel, the smaller meditation chapel, and the prayer room are open daily for meditation, prayer, or a quiet place for reflection.

The chaplain also presides at special campus occasions and services, such as Family Weekend, Hollins Day, Opening Convocation, Baccalaureate, Commencement, and Sharing the Light: A holiday celebration in story and songExpanding on the longstanding tradition of the Hollins White Gift Service, this candlelight event of music, readings, and dance celebrates the spirit of the holiday season, and welcomes the diverse traditions of our community.
