  • Advent Choral Service

    On Wednesday November 30th from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM, the Advent Choral Service took place and it was a lovely service! It was exciting, energizing, and highly symbolic to have an attendance of over 120 individuals from the community, Andy's church, McMaster students, staff and faculty sharing in a meaningful service. We had a full house filled with beautiful music and a powerful message that Andy delivered through his inauguration reflection during the service. Thank you to the McMaster Divinity College Chapel for the space, to the students in the McMaster University Choir and conductor Rachel Rensik-Hoff for an amazing performance and to all those who attended!

About Us

The Chaplaincy Centre is a place where we aspire to care about you as a "whole person", and to partner with other services on campus to help students, faculty and staff with academic, relational, spiritual and practical concerns. The personal support we seek to offer also can lead to a wide variety of programs ranging from prayer to social justice, social connections, self-care of mind, body and spirit, peace-making to awareness-raising.


Are you looking to share your thoughts with someone who will not judge you, will keep everything confidential, and can provide you with some advice if you want it? Our chaplains are here to meet with you!

"Our core values are inclusive. Our approach is non-judgemental. Our inspiration is YOU!"
