Since its founding nearly 300 years ago, the University of Pennsylvania has been a place where the religious and spiritual lives of our community are affirmed, encouraged, and faithfully served.

Today the Office of the Chaplain cares for the welfare of all members of our university community and supports the dynamic religious and spiritual life of our campus.

We invite you to participate in religious life activities
at Penn. We encourage you to seek out the faith communities that will strengthen you spiritually and intellectually.

May your season at Penn be a wonderful time of growth, challenge, and deepening.
