Through the office of the Campus Chaplain, Bishop’s University encourages the spiritual well-being of the entire campus community, including those of diverse faiths, those with no faith tradition, and those who are curious about religion and spirituality.

Spiritual Care overlaps with many branches of academic life, including counselling, mental health, ethics, environmentalism, creative arts, meaning making, and the work of peace, justice, and reconciliation. If you’re seeking support in your personal or collective journey, connect with your Campus Chaplain!
