Hubbard Interfaith Sanctuary

Saint Rose was founded in 1920 by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Carondelet as a Roman Catholic College for women. Today the college is an independent, coeducational college of liberal arts and sciences with over 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students. In 1994, the College discussed the need to build a new "sacred space" for the college community. Considering the changes that had occurred at Saint Rose and in the world since 1920, the College decided to build a space that:
  • was an interfaith space. A space that was able to address the needs of all the College members, regardless of their faith tradition;
  • revered and respected our rich Roman Catholic history and heritage;
  • was a place conducive to private prayer, meditation, and reflection.


Walking through the Sanctuary, it is noted that the main worship and gathering space has no specific religious symbols so that all feel welcome to worship here.Visitors will notice the stained glass windows created for by Cohoes Design Glass which capture the elemental colors of creation and the beauty that comes out of the chaos and energy of creation. These windows not only draw your attention to the garden in the Sanctuary but also indicate the creative energy currently involved in interreligious dialogue.

Walking the monastic path on the tiles and they lead into the indoor garden, the central feature of the prayer space. All religious traditions find God present in creation. Take a few moments to listen to the sound of the water, breathe in the scent of the earth, marvel at the green of the plants and trees, "be still, and know the presence of God".

On the northwestern side of the Sanctuary is the Catholic Christian prayer room. This space celebrates the College's heritage as a Roman Catholic College. There are visible stained glass windows from a residence hall on campus that once housed a community of Christian Brothers.

On the northeastern side of the Sanctuary there is interfaith prayer room. The prayer books of the major non-Christian traditions are here. Members of the College community from the Hindu, Jewish, Buddhist and Muslim traditions can go there for private prayer.The room faces east toward Mecca and Jerusalem for Muslim and Jewish prayer. Prayer rugs are available for Muslim prayer.

Campus Ministry

The Campus Ministry Office works to support the members of the College community as they consider the meaning of religion and spirituality in their lives. It is our hope to affirm and encourage people in the expression of their unique relationship with the divine Mystery. We seek to honor the diversity that exists in the ways people express their spirituality and help the College community find cause for celebration, education and growth through these differences while at the same time respecting , valuing, and celebrating our roots in the Roman Catholic tradition.

The Office of Campus Ministry offers programs in a number of areas:
  • Prayer and Worship opportunities—weekly Roman Catholic liturgies, prayer services (interfaith, ecumenical, and specific to a particular denomination or season of the year), publications offering information on local faith communities, celebrations of sacred seasons and holidays, retreat programs, guided meditation and relaxation programs for stress reduction
  • Informal gatherings to build community and form connections among students and between students and the Spiritual Life staff
  • Programs geared toward education, dialogue and faith sharing
  • Volunteer opportunities where the links between faith and service are explored in the context of social justice for all peoples.

  • heating and cooling rely on geothermal systems that use constant underground temperatures to control climate.
  • Daylight harvesting system automatically turns off or dims artificial lights based on amount of natural light in building
  • White and sloped roofs reduce the"heat island" effect, by minimizing absorption of sun's rays.
  • Construction materials include 97% recycled drywall, 70 to 90% recycled steek and metal studs, and 18% recycled concrete. Site materials are recycled, reducing the amount of waste at land fills.
  • Building location on bus lines encourage public transportation. Special parking will be available for hybrid and low emission vehicles. Bike racks will encourage bicycle travel.
