Religious & Spiritual Life

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life at Goucher provides opportunities for students to:

  • Expand their awareness of what others believe and how they practice.

  • Deepen their own practice, beliefs, questions, and commitments.

  • Connect with others to explore questions of meaning and purpose.

  • Explore different aspects of spirituality and religious identity. 

  • Engage in dialogue within and among different religious, spiritual, and world views.

The Sacred Space at the Haebler Memorial Chapel, the Multifaith Prayer and Meditation Space (Bacon 104, Mary Fisher), the Esther Ann Brown Adler Hillel Lounge (Heubeck), and the Chapel Undercroft are the primary locations for religious life at Goucher.

The Sacred Space is open every day and evening (including weekends) for silence, solitude, and prayer. There are events scheduled in the Sacred Space (music, religious, other) as well.

The College Chaplain, Rev. Maeba Jonas supports and oversees all aspects of religious and spiritual life at Goucher. Her office is located in the basement of the Chapel.

Watch for information about other groups and ways to connect around spiritual practice or conversation. Let us know if you are looking for specific ways to connect with others.
