Religious Opportunities on Campus

There are several weekly worship opportunities on-campus while school is in session during fall/spring semesters: 

Weekly Religious Opportunities:

Thursdays, 9:50-10:20 a.m.    Numen Lumen, Sacred Space, Numen Lumen Pavilion
Numen Lumen is a time and space to take a break from the busyness of the week and refresh the spirit.  It is not a “worship service,” rather a time of reflection offered by a member of the Elon community or guest speaker.  Music is provided each week by students and faculty from the Music department.  Refreshments will be served following Numen Lumen.

Thursday 4:15 p.m.    Meditation Sittings with Iron Tree Blooming, Belk Pavilion, Room 208

Every Thursday we offer an opportunity for everyone to learn about and practice meditation in community with others. No experience necessary. The group is associated with Rinzai Zen, which is a tradition-based not a faith-based practice.

Fridays 1:35 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.    Jumu'ah Prayers

Everyone is welcome to attend the Sermon portion of Jumu'ah Prayer. Muslims may perform ablution in the rooms next to the restroom downstairs (there are sepatate ablution rooms for brothers and for sisters).
