On Oct. 29, the Schmitt Interfaith Center Rededication ceremony celebrated the renovation of the upper lobby, the Allen Chapel and the Jones Chapel. The Kilian J. and Caroline F. Schmitt Foundation made a lead gift to kick off the renovation. It was designed to transition the center from its original focus on mainline Protestant and Jewish faith groups to include modern Christian faith groups, the growing Muslim population and other faiths, such as Zen Buddhist groups. It has also improved the center’s facilities for cultural events, such as concerts, recitals and social gatherings. The rededication featured readings, prayers and reflections from the chaplains and leaders of RIT’s Center for Religious Life’s many faith groups.
