Review of Queen’s Chaplaincy
Brian Yealland, Queen’s Chaplain since 1983, has announced his retirement effective June 30th, 2013.
At this time Ann Tierney, Vice-Provost and Dean of Student Affairs, would like to extend an invitation to the campus community to forward comments on the current state and future direction of the Chaplaincy at Queen’s.
