Rise of Humanist Chaplains - June 2023

The Rise of Humanist Chaplains: Exploring the Emergence and Impact of Secular Chaplains

With Marie-Claire Khadij, Elisa Rosoff, Srishti Hukku and Joshua Berg

Join us as we bring together four groundbreaking humanist chaplains to discuss their experience being some of the first secular chaplains to work in prisons, hospitals, universities, and the military.

This first-of-its-kind event will explore how humanists are reshaping our ideas about the chaplain profession and uniquely addressing the needs of people with secular identities.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Vanessa Gomez Brake, Associate Dean of Religious Life at the University of Southern California, and include military chaplain Marie-Claire Khadij, prison chaplain Elisa Rosoff, university chaplain Srishti Hukku, and hospital chaplain Joshua Berg.

A special introduction will be presented by Greg M. Epstein, Humanist Chaplain at Harvard University & MIT.

This event is being hosted in person and virtually by Atheists United and USC’s Office of Spiritual and Religious Life on Sunday, June 25th at 3:00 PM PT; 6:00 PM ET

Co-sponsors include Humanist CanadaThe Humanist Society, and The Humanist Chaplaincy at Harvard & MIT.
