This is a word that we in the Yale University Chaplain’s Office use and enthusiastically commit to putting into practice often. The very foundation of the work that we do at Yale is about creating an environment that feels welcoming to all people. Whether you are part of a particular religious/spiritual community or not, we welcome you! This website is designed to give you a deeper sense of the kind of work that we do at Yale as well as to promote religious literacy for the greater purpose of fostering understanding and appreciation of global religious and spiritual traditions. Whether you are visiting this site to find out more about how to connect with a particular individual, group or space, to learn about our events and programs or just to explore in general, we hope that you find what you need and that you even discover something new along the way that feeds your soul. We hope that you visit this site or our office often. You are always welcome!
