Multifaith Holidays Calendars
These links provide a resource to the entire Bates community as we seek to increase our awareness of and appreciation for the religious diversity that helps create a robust context for learning.
Dates of Religious Holidays and Festivals
We hope these calendars will facilitate thoughtful planning of our schedules and activities by drawing attention to some of the holy days and seasons that members of our campus may be observing. Faculty members may find this information helpful as a resource for objective instruction about some of the world’s religious traditions and as a reminder of the occasional religious observances that may result in student absences.
