Protestant Community

Protestant Chaplaincy at Wellesley College (logo)

The Protestant Community is a chaplaincy in the Protestant tradition, weaving together the strands of our mainline stories with the style and openness of the emerging church.

The Protestant Chaplaincy welcomes everyone. We, as a community, represent a broad cross section of Protestant denominations as well as seekers from other religions and traditions. We welcome anyone who is seeking a community that gathers to examine to ask soul-searching questions and to discern how we are being called to live out our faith in our daily lives as students, as friends, as family members, and citizens. 

All are welcome to our Wednesday evening gathering (Sophia's Table; see below for details). A simple supper is followed by a short liturgy of prayer, scripture, and reflection. Reflections are led by either our chaplain or one of our students.  

We also hold a Holy Communion Service in the Multifaith Center Gathering Area each Monday at 5pm, which is preceded by Afternoon Tea at 4pm.

In addition to our regular weekly programing, we also hold a retreat each term, twice a term student led Taco and Movie Night, opportunities for community service, and outings to area churches.

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.  Matthew 18:30
