Spiritual Support

“Spiritual health is about so much more than religion. Spirituality involves pursuing answers to key questions like: 'Who am I? Why am I here? What's the point?' It's the foundation of overall health and well-being. Spiritual Support at St. Lawrence College, is available to all students and staff, regardless of denomination, faith tradition or spiritual conviction. We want to walk alongside you as you seek meaning in life, heal from past hurts, and figure out what comes next. We're here to encourage, support, and cheer you on.”
