UNIVERSITY OF GUELPH - The Association for Bahá'í Studies
Bahá'í community life on campus revolves around a broad range of social, spiritual, intellectual, and artistic pursuits designed to enrich, inspire, and contribute to a dynamic university environment. Some activities are an extension of those offered by the larger Bahá'í Community while others are organized on campus throughout the year:


"It is within your power to contribute significantly to shaping the societies of the coming century”
Youth are “among the most energetic, the most pliable and promising elements in any society".
“Today’s youth must move towards the front ranks of the professions, trades, arts and crafts which are necessary to further the progress of humankind..“

  Devotional Gatherings
Bahá'ís come together, inviting friends and neighbors to attend small prayer sessions for the purpose of exploring the Sacred Word. These devotional gatherings are open to all and are intended to embrace that attitude of prayer, and practice of devotion, that is universal to all religions. The Sacred Books of all religions are honored and the people of all Faiths are welcome.
  Firesides & Introductory Talks
Firesides provide an opportunity to explore, in a casual setting, the Bahá'í Writings on a particular theme. They are often held on campus or in Bahá'í homes.
A theme of interest is presented and everyone is invited to share their thoughts and views. Discussion is always quite entertaining and thought provoking!
  Holy Day Events
The Bahá'í Community gathers throughout the year to celebrate and commemorate important events in the history of our Faith. Each event reflects the spirit of the occasion, and is usually complimented with artistic presentations, music, devotionals, children's activities, and refreshments.
  Lecture Series
The A.B.S. schedules lectures throughout the year on themes and issues affecting our local and global community. Contact the A.B.S. and ask for our lecture schedule for this semester.
  Study Circles
Bahá'ís get together in small groups and use discussion and practical exercises to systematically study those spiritual and moral principles that can be directly applied to transforming their lives and expanding their commitment to personal and collective change.
  Summer Service Projects
Service within local communities is part of the Bahá'í commitment to faith in action. Many students, over the course of the summer, offer their services overseas while others share their talents in local education programs, dance workshops, environmental initiatives, artistic presentations, and a variety of other service projects. Ask how you can get involved!
