Reflection and Spiritual Care Center

Reflection and Spiritual Care Center building detail

The Reflection and Spiritual Care Center houses the office of Campus Ministry. It is a place to relax, take a deep breath, light a candle, and browse a book on any spiritual subject in our library. Located in Samuel Read Hall Building across from Lamson Library, the Center and its staff are open to and respectful of people of faith and of different perspectives. It is available to students, staff, and faculty as a quiet and restful space; you do not have to use it for religious purposes.

Open Hours

The center’s hours vary each semester. Currently, it is open by appointment; please e-mail a specific campus minister. (See the list below.)

Campus Ministry

Campus Ministry is a service to the Plymouth State community provided by local places of worship and the greater Plymouth community. Plymouth State has Catholic, Episcopal, and Interfaith ministries. They provide spiritual, social, and service activities to people from all walks of life and of different faiths and perspectives. They offer sources of discussion and support, encouraging students, faculty, and staff to think about faith and spirituality in personal, academic, and social ways. The campus ministries also participate in many aspects of campus life.

Catholic Campus Ministry (CCM)

We are Catholic Christians, coming together to build our faith individually and as a community so that we can be the light of Christ that we are meant to be, and in our own special and unique way, make this world a better place.

First and foremost we build community. We are accepting of all who choose to join us, whether or not they are Catholic. Spiritual activities include weekly meetings where we discuss topics of faith from a Catholic perspective; monthly prayer services and suppers with the pastor of local Holy Trinity Catholic Parish; and monthly Bible studies that we host with Keene State students. In addition, we do many social and service activities.
