The Citadel

The Military College of South Carolina


Campus Religious Activities

The Cadet Chaplain also serves as the Director of Religious Activities. The college is fortunate to have over twenty campus pastors or ministry directors representing seventeen diverse religious groups, to include Catholic, Orthodox, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist and ten Protestant denominations plus five Nondenominational or Para-Church ministries. These leaders work together to maintain a strong religious foundation for the cadet's ethical and moral formation, one of the four pillars in The Citadel's development of principled leaders. Denominational group meetings are held every Monday evening and Para-Church groups meet each Thursday evening for study, fellowship and worship.

In addition to the Cadet Chaplain, two other campus chaplains are provided by their respective Churches. These are the Catholic and Episcopal/Anglican Chaplains. Together with the Cadet Chaplain, they provide pastoral counseling which is an important component in the overall design of The Citadel's advisory program. The Chaplain to the Corps of Cadets and campus pastors are available to assist students in dealing with life's problems in the context of religious faith. With the chaplain and campus pastors, students are assured of care, concern, and confidentiality, whatever their situation.
