The Office of the Chaplain and Religious Life seeks to support a diversity of beliefs through the multifaith character of the chaplaincy and its relationship to some 16 religious life affiliates. We acknowledge the importance of faith, both in our individual and collective lives, and strive to provide opportunities for members of the Wake Forest community to express and explore their faith in a supportive community. The core work of chaplaincy is rooted in the care of the whole person – body, soul and spirit. As such, a key aspect of our office is to make available pastoral care and advisement for any member of the Wake Forest community – students, staff, faculty, and alumni. This can happen through individual counsel, programming on critical spiritual themes, intervention in medical emergencies, mortality concerns and presiding at key life rituals.
In the OCRL we want to expand religious literacy and broaden knowledge of other spiritualities, promote interfaith dialogue and religious ideas that are reflective of our diverse campus. This website will introduce you to our work, programs and religious life colleagues. Navigate this site to meet the chaplains, the OCRL staff and religious life affiliates.
