Welcome back to another semester at Memorial University!

I am available for anyone who would like to meet and chat for any reason. Please feel free to drop by the Chaplaincy Office in the Counselling Centre. I am usually in the Office in the mornings (or in the Food Court), but if you want to be sure to catch me, call or e-mail first.  Every Thursday you can find me serving popcorn in the Loft as part of our Oasis!

On Sunday mornings you can usually find me at St. Augustine's Anglican Church (next to the Aquarena), doing priestly liturgical things. You are always welcome to join us there (8:30 or 10 a.m.). We have several students who worship with us, and we have special events for students throughout the year.  It was a great pleasure to welcome close to 200 students from more than 20 different countries recently at the International Thanksgiving Dinner!

At 10 a.m. Sunday, 2 February, St. Augustine's will be hosting a special service celebrating our international community. The International Gospel Choir of Newfoundland and Labrador will be providing music for the service, along with our own band, Jacob's Passage. Our preacher for the day will be our new Bishop, The Right Reverend Dr. Geoffrey Peddle. There will also be a lunch of international food served after the service.  All are welcome to come out and join us!  For more information, please contact Roger.

As one of the Chaplains here at Memorial, I am available to any student, faculty, or staff member who would like to meet with me. I provide spiritual guidance and counselling, or just someone to talk to. Please feel free to contact me.
