Honoring Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., through Spirituals and Civil Rights Movement Songs
ALL ARE Welcome!
“No matter what world we live in now, we are all people of the earth, connected to one another by our mutual humanity.”
~Angeles Arrien, The Four-Fold Way
The mission of the Chaplain's Office is to enhance and nuture the spiritual life of students, faculty, and staff at St. Lawrence University. We are grounded in the welcome and inclusion of all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, culture, gender, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, or religion/spiritual tradition. We believe that SPIRITUALITY is central to our lives, and listening to ourselves, and others, helps us to live more meaningful lives. Spirituality does not necessarily equal religion, though spirituality may overlap with religion or belief in God/the divine/higher being. Our working definition of spirituality is “that which moves us toward wholeness.”

For the last century, the Candlelight Service has been a cornerstone of the St. Lawrence experience and the holiday season in the North Country. The service offers a pause for reflection before final exams and marks the end of the fall semester and the approaching turn of the calendar year. The service also signals the beginning of winter and the promise of longer daylight.
