Multifaith Services and Celebrations

Gunnison Memorial Chapel

The chapel is normally open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Bean bag chairs, Tibetan Singing Bowl and Lamp are always in the front of the Chapel. Students are invited to come and experience the quiet late at night.

Unfortunately, because of the fire in Gunnison Chapel in the fall of 2013, the Chapel will be closed until the reconstruction is completed.

Islam - A World Of Love And Peace

A world where people love to smile,
And send good wishes all the while.
A world where people offer peace,
And good words from them never cease.
A world where people do not hoard,
But give to those who can't afford.
A world where people help defend,
And heal the wounds and try to mend.
A world where people share a gift,
And help the pauper's spirit lift.
A world where people feel no pride,
But live together side by side.
A world where people purify,
And always on their Lord rely.
This world, we have it in our palm.
Dear people, It Is Al – Islam
