Chaplaincy

Did You Know?

  • The Luther College Residence offers an early payment discount. You can save up to $225 when you pay by August 15 (for Fall) and/or December 15 (for Winter)!

  • Luther College welcomes students of all faiths, ethnicities, backgrounds, religions, genders, and sexual orientation.

  • Luther students can sign up for the UR Guarantee program - get a guaranteed job after you graduate!

  • All programs at Luther College offer study abroad opportunities. As an affiliate of the U of R, we have partnerships with 450 universities across 70 different countries.

  •  Every single degree program at Luther College offers an optional experiential learning component; gain real world experience and get paid while you go to school!

  • ALL U of R students including Luther students can take Luther courses.

  • Luther College opened the first residence on campus in 1971, and is still a “home away from home” to students: meals, laundry, and lifelong friendship included.

  • Small classes = big advantages. As a federated college, Luther College classes are typically smaller. This allows for students to connect with their profs and classmates.

Chaplaincy - Here for the whole house.

A Rabbi and chaplain once said that “The chaplain is the chaplain to the whole house. The chaplain is confident in his or her own spirituality and doesn’t need to bring everyone to the same place. It is the roll of chaplaincy to make sure that everyone gets to where they are going.” This means that you have a chaplain available to you if you choose to be involved no matter what path you are on.
 

What does the Chaplaincy do?

Simply put, the Chaplain and the Peer Chaplains are friends. We are dedicated to walking with you. We are a resource for you as you explore your spiritual journey in whatever form it takes. Our Peer Chaplains come from a variety of Denominations and Faith backgrounds and our purpose is to be a safe place to explore and challenge our faith and our ideas. We are dedicated to challenging, supporting, discussing, and walking with you in matters of life and faith.

The peer chaplaincy team is one way for students to serve the academic and wider community. In the past, some of our projects have included: Theology on Tap; Soul Creations; Knitting Circles; Fair Trade Fair; Tea Parties; Animate: Faith; Sweaters for Syria; Advent Service of Lessons & Carols; Busy Person’s Retreat*; Advocacy Lunch*; Stress Buster Retreats*; Giving Thanks Lunch*. . . and more!

Check out our Events Calendar for current activities and/or follow us on Facebook.

During the academic year, we come together for worship and spiritual conversation on Sundays at 6:30 p.m. and Tuesdays at 2:30 p.m.

Our services and events are open to EVERYONE. ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE! Feeling stressed, anxious, or you just need someone to talk to, Pastor Sean is always ready to listen. Our Peer Chaplains are equally ready. Like we said, we are a friend.   

If you need a quiet place to think or pray or just be, consider the Luther Chapel (2nd floor), It’s open every day, all day. Drop in for a moment of quiet.

You can also drop by Pastor Sean’s Office, LC 107 or contact him at 306.585.5028 or sean.bell@luthercollege.edu. He will listen to your concerns with an open mind and an open heart.
