Chaplaincy @ Memorial
Welcome to Memorial University Chaplaincy! We seek to build a Community on Campus in which we can all share our Faith and explore our Spirituality together, as we continue to grow spiritually.
We are pleased to welcome our new Muslim Chaplain, Kassem Abouchehade, to our team! We are also happy to welcome back Marlene George, a former Chaplain, who is taking on the role of Salvation Army Chaplain on a one-year replacement! Along with our new Muslim Chaplain, we now have Chaplains representing three Christian traditions on campus: Anglican, Pentecostal, and Salvation Army. (The Roman Catholic and United Church positions are currently vacant.) We realize that Memorial is becoming a truly international community made up of many faiths, traditions, and ideologies, and we are always trying to build bridges with our friends in the other faith traditions represented at Memorial.
The Chaplains work together as a ministry team for the benefit of students, staff, and faculty. In an institution designed for growing, changing, deciding and testing, Chaplaincy attempts to provide resources, guidance, and support for those involved in this growth and change process.
Chaplaincy also seeks to bring a faith dimension to contemporary issues such as peace, justice, technology, and science. We are here to provide a forum for interaction, a non-threatening environment, opportunities for fellowship and spiritual growth, as well as individual pastoral counselling and support.
