Evelyn Chapel is your place to: explore faith and spirituality, participate in and lead creative programs, engage in multifaith conversation and friendship, discover ways to serve in the Bloomington-Normal community, and live out IWU’s mission of social justice.
Check out the Events Page and see what sparks your interest, and let me know if you are interested in helping to plan or lead any of these events. Your participation is needed and welcome, no matter where you are at on your spiritual or religious journey.
As University Chaplain, I also work in partnership with the Council on Religious Life to support all student religious RSOs and the broad diversity of religious life on campus. If you are a part of one of these existing groups, let’s talk about how Evelyn Chapel and other groups can partner together on shared mission and events. And if you are interested in starting a new spiritual and/or religious group, please let me know!
Evelyn Chapel is also a place to just come and be. The Chapel is open seven days a week from 8:00am to 11:00pm. There are always spaces available to study, gather for conversation, or make a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. And I am available to students, faculty, and staff for conversation and support. Just call or email me to make an appointment.
The Office of University Chaplain is a Safe Zone.
