In addition to the worship services provided by our member communities, the Office of the University Chaplain provides a number of regular services throughout the academic year including our Interfaith Chapel Services and our Signature Services.
Interfaith Chapel Services
During the school year, at noon on the first Wednesday of the month, the Office of the University Chaplain leads an interfaith service of prayer and reflection. It is a space for the university community—students, faculty, and staff—to come together to reflect on events on our campus, in our nation, and in our world.
The services are interfaith but not in a "lowest common denominator" kind of way. They include elements of authentic tradition from our member communities as a way of reflecting from multiple perspectives on the issues we're exploring. In addition, a service like this can be a powerful witness for unity in diversity.
We invite you to join us for our monthly chapel services. Everyone is welcome regardless of religious background or lack thereof.

Throughout the year, we take time to reflect on the life and work of an individual or movement and explore what lessons can be learned today. For years, we have observed a service of remembrance for Monsignor Oscar Romero, the martyred Archbishop of El Salvador whose work for social and economic justice continues to inspire us today. This year, we will be adding a service commemorating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other services throughout the year to give us the opportunity to reflect on the examples of people who lived out the values American University cherishes.
