  • On-Campus MSU Religious Clubs

    McMaster University is home to numerous campus ministries/religious clubs representing a variety of world religious traditions. Each ministry develops its own programming and outreach, contributing to the diverse spiritual and cultural life of our campus. These ministries are not affiliated with the Chaplaincy Centre although we do work collaboratively and with mutual respect. Students, staff and faculty have the opportunity to learn and engage with these other campus ministries and religious clubs and find what is a right fit for them.
  • The Chaplaincy Centre at McMaster offers students, staff, and faculty an opportunity to integrate their faith commitments with their experiences in the campus community. Our programs and services are intentionally ecumenical in nature and draw upon the broad intellectual, spiritual, and liturgical Christian tradition. We are available to provide spiritual guidance and or support for staff, students, and faculty.

What is Chaplaincy?

Chaplaincy is about caring for you as a"whole person" -mind, body and spirit. The Chaplaincy Centre has Christian Orientations, however, we are available to anyone whether part of a religious community or not. We all deserve and desire to be treated as whole human beings. Chaplaincy is about caring for one another in this way. We call it "spiritual care".


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