Interfaith at Luther

Luther students celebrate Kwanzaa together.

College Ministries supports all students regardless of faith tradition, offering opportunities for interfaith dialogue, including the following groups:

Interfaith Opportunities

Does your soul have a story? Join in an interfaith experience of silence, listening and sharing stories that helps us to listen well, speak truth, and be peace.

Interfaith Holiday Celebrations

Because faith matters at Luther College, Interfaith Holiday Celebrations provide an opportunity for students to share an aspect of their religious tradition or learn about someone else’s tradition.

A number of holidays are highlighted each year around food, music, activities, and learning. These events are open to all.
