Columbia University Interfaith Fellows Program is a new initiative of the Office of the University Chaplain. The Interfaith Fellows Program will support ten students interested in interfaith programming at Columbia University. Interfaith Fellows will develop programming to engage faith communities in their schools at Columbia University on issues of faith and spirituality.
Common Meal provides students, faculty, senior administrators, and New York City community leaders with a venue to discuss a specific topic or an emerging issue affecting the Columbia Community over a meal. Common Meals are Vegetarian, with a Kosher option. They are held on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 p.m., either in the Choir Room of Saint Paul's Chapel or in Earl Hall.
If interested in attending, please email Chaplain Davis at email@example.com so that we are able to order the right amount of food and to request a Kosher meal.
Please note: Common Meal gatherings will resume beginning with the Spring 2014 semester.
Exhale is an interfaith space for prayer, meditation, reflection, and centering. Various spiritual practices are made available for students to explore, including using finger-labyrinths, coloring Buddhist mandala patterns, journaling, Buddhist meditation beads, Rosaries, and spiritual poetry. Each week a distinct faith tradition is highlighted and students are encouraged to explore their own spirituality while also learning about the practices of their neighbors. Exhale is most importantly a space to take a break, grab a snack, breathe, and pause in the midst of the week.
Exhale occurs every Tuesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Fireplace Room on the 3rd floor of Earl Hall and all are welcome to drop in as their schedule allows.
Music at St. Paul's showcases a wide variety of sacred and secular performances in St. Paul's Chapel featuring New York City artists. Programs have included classical performances from Juilliard, Korean drumming, Cantors, and jazz ensembles. Families are especially welcome.
