Faith and Spiritual Life offers multi-faith, non-judgmental support for religious, spiritual, personal, and financial problems, concerns or crises. As part of Student Affairs, Faith and Spiritual Life strives to facilitate a welcoming, peaceful, and safe space. Chaplains can also provide support, ceremonial services, interfaith community development and spiritual support to students, faculty, and staff.

We are faith-positive, spirituality-positive, and queer-positive. We respect and advocate for both freedom of, and freedom from, religion. 

Student life at university is full of opportunities for personal growth both inside and outside the classroom. But there are times when students feel the need for support:

  • In times of loneliness or personal need, perhaps due to anxiety, depression or financial problems
  • In times of change, as you prepare for marriage or decide a career
  • In times of crisis, such as death, accident or serious illness

Chaplains are here to support you.

Faith and Spiritual Life at Queen’s is responsible for:

  • Journeying with students of any/every identification through questions of meaning, purpose, and morality

  • Religious Accommodation for academic requirements

  • Providing meaningful ceremonies for special events in the life of the campus community

  • Providing emergency food access through Swipe it Forward Queen's

  • Liaising with local churches and faith communities 

  • Referrals to other support services
