Do you want to change the world? Mobilizing communities for positive social change requires educated leaders equipped with the skills to organize people and power. Community organizing is a way to do just that.
Hendricks Chapel is the diverse religious, spiritual, ethical and cultural heart of Syracuse University that connects people of all faiths and no faith through active engagement, mutual dialogue, reflective spirituality, responsible leadership and a rigorous commitment to social justice.
“When I first came to Syracuse, everything was different. New friends, new classes but my faith and religion stayed the same.”
As the new semester begins, the Protestant Campus Ministry at Syracuse University and SUNY ESF will welcome a new chaplain: Rev. Bruce Webster.
Connie Foote has been involved with many activities at Hendricks Chapel as well as Syracuse University over the years.
On behalf of the Hendricks Chapel family – the dean’s staff, chaplains, religious workers, choirs and the Office of Engagement – I welcome you to Syracuse University and invite you to come and be part of the exciting programs and opportunities we offer throughout the year.
Hendricks Chapel is a place for all people. As the university’s multi-faith center, it is home to a wide array of religious traditions and lifestances. At Hendricks Chapel people come together for dialogue, fellowship and engagement.
Here you can participate in one of our many chaplaincies, student groups or choirs to nurture your own growing spirituality. We have 10 chaplaincies, 23 student groups and 3 choirs, representing 7 world religious traditions and there is always room for more. You can join Students for Inter-Religious Understanding in dialogue or apply to become part of the Interfaith Council which plans events across campus and in the community. Hendricks Chapel provides a wide variety of opportunities to wrestle with pressing contemporary issues, for example through our Artist in Residence series or luncheon lectures.
Students of all faiths and no faith find a home at Hendricks Chapel. You can grab a cup of coffee at People's Place, a student-run coffee shop, and settle into the Noble Room to study or simply enjoy quiet contemplation in the main Chapel. Hendricks Chapel is also a portal into the wider community. The Office of Engagement Programs offers you the opportunity to participate in mentoring, arts enrichment, and youth empowerment programs with middle and high school students across the city.
More than anything, we want you to know you are welcome at Hendricks Chapel. As the heart and soul of Syracuse University, Hendricks Chapel truly is a home for all faiths and a place for all people. There are many ways to become involved and we look forward to getting to know you.
Rev. Dr. Tiffany Steinwert
