Multi-Faith Chaplaincy Services

While on campus, we are here to create safe and hospitable spaces that will support your spiritual wellness. Our multi-faith team of volunteer chaplains and faith liaisons work together to provide listening ears and spiritual resources that can respond to your needs.

Taking care of your spiritual wellness

uOttawa Multi-Faith Chaplaincy welcomes all students, staff, and faculty — no matter what their faith, philosophy, questions or doubts may be. While on campus (virtual or in-person), we are here to create safe and hospitable spaces that will support your spiritual wellness. Our multi-faith team of volunteer chaplains and faith liaisons work together to provide listening ears and spiritual resources that can respond to your needs. We do this by providing pastoral care and immediate crisis response; encouraging and promoting opportunities for inter-faith dialogue and spiritual learning; working cooperatively with partners on and off campus; offering programs and events that will encourage understanding, respect and empathy among people of diverse spiritual and religious backgrounds.

What we do

  • Chaplains offer pastoral care on personal and spiritual issues on a drop-in basis and by appointment in person or online
  • host programs focused on spiritual wellness and spiritual practice
  • collaborate with the Wellness Centre to consider spiritual wellness integration needs
  • collaborate with university staff and students in response to a crisis on campus
  • help students connect with specific local communities of faith and practice, and with interfaith activities in the area
  • Collaborate with the CVUO Multi-Faith office on student initiated inter-faith events
  • upon request, provide religious rites and perform marriages
