Historical Note

[From the Bates website.] The Multifaith Chaplaincy at Bates College offers a variety of opportunities to students, faculty, and staff for the support and nurture of their spiritual lives and learning. In addition to being available to all in the College for personal counsel as well as spiritual direction and care, the Multifaith Chaplaincy supports the several religious communities present on campus.

The Multifaith Chaplaincy also sponsors many programs and occasions for the development of soul and mind in the context of community.

Promoting an explicitly multireligious orientation and program, we seek to encourage a climate of genuine religious pluralism at Bates, in which the diversity and differences among us are respected and fruitfully engaged, not muted or merely tolerated. People of all religious traditions as well as those who do not identify with any religious tradition are welcome to participate in all of the Multifaith Chaplaincy's programs and to utilize our services.

The Multifaith Chaplaincy works with several volunteer Associated Chaplains who serve the needs of particular faith communities at Bates.

Scope and Content Note

The collection contains correspondence and memoranda, memorial service programs, reports, brochures and flyers, newsletters, and a few clippings. A number of materials relate to the Chapel building itself, in particular the dedication services, and records on the Chapel organ and stained-glass windows. Administrative materials include budget and committee files.

Organization and Arrangement

These records are arranged into two series: Administrative Files and Publications. Within each series, files are arranged alphabetically by folder title.
