Conversations with Clergy

Cultural

Because confidential conversations about matters of faith are best accommodated by clergy who have been trained to minister to your specific spiritual needs, beginning in early February, 2019, local clergy members from various denominations and faith-traditions will be available from 3:00-5:00 pm in Old Main 243 for one-on-one conversations with interested students. This is a pilot project, sponsored by the USU Interfaith Initiative, so we are intentionally beginning small. If there is sufficient demand, this program will expand to include clergy of other faith traditions in the future. We encourage you to drop by and have a conversation with these well-trained clergy members about anything that is on your heart or mind. For information on names and affiliations of clergy who will be available on any given Tuesday afternoon, please visit the Interfaith Initiative website at http://interfaith.usu.edu/interfaith_support_services.
