Religious services on campus

Nondenominational Christian Service - Sundays at 6 PM

Christian ecumenical services are offered most Sunday evenings in the Harriett B. Wick Chapel during the Fall and Spring Terms. These services are sponsored by the Bradford Area Ministerium, representing churches in the local Bradford area, with Pitt-Bradford providing the space. The service lasts approximately 30 minutes, and is coordinated by The Reverend Stacey Fussell, Pastor at the Church of the Ascension (Episcopal). Clergy or lay leaders from Presbyterian, United Methodist, and other Protestant traditions involved in the Ministerium also participate and lead worship on a rotating basis. Interested students, faculty, staff, and the public are cordially invited to attend any of these services.

Harriett B. Wick Chapel Hours are Monday-Friday, 8:30 AM to 5 PM, and Saturday and Sunday, 4-8 PM. The chapel welcomes people of all faiths, or people of no faith, for quiet reflection, meditation, prayer, or just when one needs “a place apart”.

If you have questions regarding interfaith services or meditation, please contact Angie Wolfe - Director, Leadership Development and Community Engagement.; 814.362.7650
