Places of Worship

There are many places, both on the Bates Campus and in the surrounding area, for worship, prayer, meditation, reflection, and retreats.

The Gomes Chapel is open 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. every day.
The Muslim Prayer Room, Hindu shrine, and Buddhist Meditation Room are located in Chase Hall, which is open 7:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. every day. If you would like access at other times, please contact us.

The Greater Lewiston-Auburn area and its surrounding communities are home to religious communities of many denominations.

There are many quiet places on campus for those looking to spend some quiet time in worship, prayer, meditation, or reflection.

There are several off-campus retreat centers throughout the region for those looking to organize a retreat off-campus.

The Multifaith Chaplaincy also owns two labyrinths, which will be available for use once they are set up. Stay tuned!
