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 have four denominations represented in the “Campus Chaplaincy Office”: Anglican, Pentecostal, Roman Catholic, and The Salvation Army, who are happy to help people of any faith background.

We are here for you.

Someone to talk to. Someone to listen.

At MUN Chaplaincy, we recognize that Memorial University 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.

We now have four chaplains on campus: Anglican, Pentecostal, Roman Catholic and Salvation Army who are happy to help people of any faith background.

We are here for you.
