Interfaith Campus Ministry

Knight House building on campusWho Are We? The Interfaith Campus Ministry is comprised of Windham area clergy representing different faith backgrounds who offer their time and talents in meeting the spiritual needs of the Eastern Community.

What Do We Do? The Interfaith Campus Ministry provides spiritual opportunities for Eastern students, faculty and staff of religiously diverse backgrounds while adhering to the traditional separation of church and state.

Where and When? The Interfaith Campus Ministry operates out of the Interfaith Center located at Knight House. The campus ministers provide spiritual guidance by appointment. An appointment may be obtained by calling (860) 423-0856. Voicemail is available 24/7. The Center is also the site for religious observances, support group meetings, leadership seminars and social events. Shawn's Cupboard, our student-led food pantry for Eastern students, is also located at Knight House.

Blood Drives Interfaith Campus Ministry and the Center for Community Engagement co-sponsor four blood drives each year.  Since we will be following the COVID-19 guidelines put in place by the University the fall blood drives for the 2022-23 school year will be held in the Betty Tipton Room in the Student Center.  The dates of the Spring blood drives are 1/31 & 2/1 and 4/4 & 4/5. Hope to see you there!  Remember, one pint of blood can save up to three lives!

Thursday Knight Cafe Interfaith Campus Ministry and the Office of Student Affairs sponsor Thursday Knight Cafe (also known by the students as "Pancake Night") at the Student Center most Thursday nights. The Spring semester dates are January 19, 26; February 2, 9, 23; March 2, 9, 23, 30; April 13, 20, 27 and May 4.  The hours will be from 8-11 pm with pancakes being served from 8:30-10:00 pm.  We will be following all COVID guidelines put in place by the University.

Shawn's Cupboard is a student-led food pantry for all Eastern students which is located at Knight House and staffed by student volunteers.  Our mission statement is "Students who have enough to eat every day are more likely to remain in school and to perform at their best. The Cupboard at Knight House is  sponsored by the Foundation for Campus Ministry and is intended to provide supplemental food assistance to students who may have challenges with having enough food to eat during the academic year."  The hours are Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.  No appointments needed.

Please call (860) 423-0856 for more information.
