Interfaith Groups

  • The Interfaith Office sponsors a Catholic Mass every Sunday at 7:30pm in the pre-function area outside of the ASC ballroom. They are open and accepting of LGBT people so please feel welcome to attend.
  • The Newman Society is an undergraduate student led organization. These students are quite active within the community from volunteering at the soup kitchen to sponsoring the Community's Response to Overcome Poverty (CROP) Walk. The group is LGBT friendly.
  • Have you lost your faith due to the struggle among LGBT issues and christianity? Have you always had faith but do not know how to incorporate it into your life? Would you like to gain it back? The film For the Bible Tells Me So is an amazing insight into how people use the Bible as "an excuse to hate". Its film synopsis reads, "Through the experiences of five very normal, very Christian, very American families -- including those of former House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt and Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson -- we discover how insightful people of faith handle the realization of having a gay child". Informed by such respected voices as Bishop Desmond Tutu, Harvard's Peter Gomes, Orthodox Rabbi Steve Greenberg and Reverend Jimmy Creech, For the Bible Tells Me So offers healing, clarity and understanding to anyone caught in the crosshairs of scripture and sexual identity.
