Religious & Spiritual Life

Beauty shot of the Rooke Chapel

Whether you are a member of one of the world’s religious traditions, atheist, agnostic, seeker, or anywhere in between, there is space here for you within Religious & Spiritual Life. We are committed to the notion that you can bring your whole self – questions and convictions, heart and soul – to your Bucknell experience. Our team of chaplains, coordinators, and student leaders provide ritual and Holiday observance, communal meals, pastoral support, multi-faith community, reflective practice, and education. We have spaces dedicated to Muslim, Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant Life, as well as multi-use space. All of our occasions are open to all students, staff and faculty.

Mission

By providing confidential pastoral care, a vibrant collection of student-centered religious/spiritual communities, substantive multi-faith connection and opportunities to explore meaning and purpose, regardless of religious tradition, the Office of Religious & Spiritual Life seeks to provide for the religious and spiritual well-being of the Bucknell community.

Our Gathering Spaces

The work of the office is centered in Rooke Chapel, which stands at the entrance to campus, symbolizing the inherent connection of the mind and spirit. But religious life work is not limited to one building or religious tradition. Three faith-related houses on St. George Street, a Muslim Community Space in the South Campus Apartments and diverse spiritual communities that meet in the Rooke Meditation Chapel offer a glimpse of the vibrant religious and spiritual traditions present at Bucknell.
