Supported by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Raleigh, Catholic Angels is the Catholic campus ministry at Meredith College. Catholic Angels ministers to the spiritual, social and theological needs of the students, faculty and administration. We stress the values of social justice and participate in programs reaching out to the community at large. Although this group was established to minister to Catholics, it is open to all persons interested in this faith or being a part of this community.
Meredith's Interfaith Council promotes understanding and fellowship among the numerous religious groups on campus. The Interfaith Council is made up of several members from the following organizations: Meredith Christian Association, Campus Crusade for Christ, Catholic Community of Meredith College, Chi Alpha Christian Fellowship, Every Nation Campus Ministries, Muslim Student Association, Jewish Students Organization and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Together, as a team, the Interfaith Council plans activities that promote fellowship, understanding and service among the different organizations on our campus. The Chaplain leads the Interfaith Council.
