    Services from many religions are held at Houghton Memorial Chapel, which was designed by Heins and LaFarge and completed in 1899. Currently the Religious Life team at Wellesley includes a Buddhist advisor, a Jewish chaplain, a Muslim advisor, a Roman Catholic chaplain, a Protestant chaplain, and a Unitarian Universalist chaplain, as well as advisors and student groups from the Baha'i, Hindu, Jain, Native African, Native American, Sikh, and Zoroastrian communities. Wellesley celebrates its diversity and fosters a sense of community through a multi-faith team approach to religion. The College's Religious and Spiritual Life program has become a national model, followed by over 300 colleges nationwide.

    Houghton Chapel is also home for many of Wellesley's musical performances, including those by the Triple Helix Piano Trio, Wellesley-Brandeis Orchestra, and the Wellesley College Choir, which often hosts concerts with other colleges and universities. Wellesley's traditions of stepsinging and Flower Sunday also take place here.
