Christian Life

Christian Life at the University of Richmond offers students, staff, and faculty an opportunity to integrate their faith commitments with their experiences in the campus community. Our programs and services are intentionally ecumenical in nature and draw upon the broad intellectual, spiritual, and liturgical Christian tradition. 

On-Campus Worship
Christians from every denomination have an opportunity to worship on campus including Catholic Mass on Sundays at 5 p.m. and Kairos on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. in the Chapel. The Chaplaincy also leads mid-day prayer from 12:30-1 p.m. in the Chapel on Wednesdays during the academic year and coordinates services in observance of the major holidays in the Christian year.

Flamming Program
The Flamming program provides opportunities and resources for students to grow deeper in their faith and to prepare for lives of faith, leadership, and service. The program features discernment groups and funding for summer internship opportunities.

Pilgrimage Program
In the past, the Chaplaincy has hosted pilgrimages to the Taizé community in France and led a walking pilgrimage along St. Cuthbert's Way in the United Kingdom.

Campus Ministries
The Chaplaincy also works in partnership with twelve Christian campus ministries that represent a variety of denominations. Each of these ministries is facilitated by a campus minister who serves full-time at UR, in a local congregation, or in the local chapter of a national Christian organization.
