Label: Purpose & Activities

Since 1999, Chaplaincy Institute has been dedicated to bringing new models of spiritual leadership and creative ministry to promote religious peace and understanding. Members train interfaith leaders in spiritual direction, chaplaincy and spiritual service. A sub-sector of ChI faculty, community members, allies and alumni are creating an “eco-ministry intensive” as part of the Institute’s offerings. It is this group that joins URI. Members see the environment as a crucial common ground for different religions and wish their students to be trained in Wiccan, Pagan, Indigenous, and Eco-Spirituality traditions to further their studies of various spiritual care practices, theological literacy and public speaking. They offered an Eco-Ministry intensive as a pilot program. Members have plans for more Green Seminary community-building. 

VALUE: Allying with those often called “marginalized”
