I will praise the LORD as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God while I have being.” Psalm 146, 2

As in many other Protestant and Ecumenical Institutions of Theological education around the globe Spiritual life and Biblical meditation are part and parcel of the Vita Communis at FIT during lecture periods. With a twenty-minutes worship at 9:45 on study days (Mondays: 18:45) we pause in our studies and get back to what gives us hope in living and dying. Each Tuesday we celebrate Holy Communion.

A liturgy in Lutheran tradition is underlying our compound worship. We warmly welcome enriching elements of other denominations. Students and professors cooperate in preparing and leading the worships.

All students and coworkers of FIT are cordially invited. If requested, rooms for prayer and meditation for students of other religious faiths and creeds are available on the compound.
