Dedicated to empowering and enhancing spiritual life at The Claremont Colleges, the Interfaith Office of the Chaplains directs the programs of McAlister Center for Religious Activities. Assisting students in making contact with members of their community of belief, the chaplains, a Protestant minister, a Catholic priest and a Jewish rabbi, coordinate a wide range of events, programs and provide pastoral counseling for the Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Zen, Latter-Day Saints, Christian Science, Unitarian and other communities. Weekly worship services are celebrated in the Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant traditions, and major Jewish and Christian holidays are observed with special services.
The chaplains also direct The Claremont Colleges Community Service Center, which provides diverse volunteer opportunities in the local area.
Located within McAlister Center are the Community Service Center, a meditation chapel, a library, a fireside lounge and the chaplains’ offices.
