Spiritual and religious life center - the Synder Sanctuary

Spiritual and religious life

Lynn accommodates and supports all religious and spiritual beliefs.

There's a community for everyone

We are a community that affirms the spirituality, religion and equality of all people. We believe in the power of coexistence, and we work—one step at a time—toward the idealistic goal of creating widespread peace. From worship services and sacred spaces on and off campus, to student religious organizations and multi-faith fairs, it is our duty to educate students about theology and all the benefits it can bear. 

Sacred spaces on campus are available for members of all faiths and denominations to utilize, observe and inquire.

  • The Landgren Chapel, established when Lynn was Marymount College, now serves as a link to the university’s Roman Catholic roots. Masses are regularly offered Monday–Thursday at noon, and Sundays at 7 p.m.
  •  The Masjid is an Islamic prayer room equipped with Holy Quar’an books, which makes it possible for Muslim students to perform their five daily ritual prayers. It may also be used for Islam discussions. 
  • The Snyder Sanctuary serves as a place of refuge, spiritual reflection, meditation, music, celebration and dialogue. Its outdoor labyrinth adopts an ancient pattern found in cultures around the world and is used to quiet the mind, find balance and encourage meditation and insight. By walking the path in and out, one can develop a sense of empowerment, spiritual insight and a new connection to self.
