The Office of the College Chaplain serves as the spiritual center of campus where hundreds of young men and women gather regularly to share their joys, triumphs, talents, questions, struggles, and, most significantly, their faith in God and their commitment to the Gospel.
We welcome all to come for a few minutes of conversation, quiet prayer, a listening ear or a fresh
perspective. Students are invited to worship at one of our liturgies or participate in one of our faith-formation programs.
Jesus says in John's Gospel: "In my Father's house there are many dwelling places." Our hope is that you find a spiritual home in St. Mary of the Angels Chapel and in the services of the College Chaplain's Office.
Almighty, eternal, just, and merciful God, grant us. . . the grace to do for You alone what we know You want us to do, and always to desire what pleases You. Thus, inwardly cleansed, interiorly enlightened, and inflamed by the fire of the Holy Spirit, may we be able to follow in the footprints of Your beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ...
-- St. Francis of Assisi

Information for Non-Catholic Students
Here at Siena College we support all of our students in their search for ultimate meaning in their lives. This is an important part of our Franciscan tradition. For students who are not of the Roman Catholic faith tradition, the Chaplain’s Office is available to assist you with finding a place of worship within your own religious tradition.
