As a Catholic and Dominican College, Providence College encourages its students, faculty, staff, and friends to worship God regularly and in doing so, to be transformed by God's grace. Indeed, it is only when we have been transformed by God that we have the ability to transform society. Prayer is thus essential if we are to fulfill our highest calling: to love God with all our mind, all our heart, and all our strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.
Students of all faiths are most welcome to participate in the liturgies and activities sponsored by the Office of the Chaplain/Campus Ministry and the Center for Catholic and Dominican Studies.
