Multi-Faith Resources for Students at Trent University
What is Trent University Spiritual Affairs?
Trent University Spiritual Affairs provides support to students from all faith traditions, as well as students who are considering questions of meaning, purpose and identity. Our multi-faith model is rooted in respect, understanding, and inclusion.
Spiritual Support for Students during the Covid-19 Pandemic
Living through a pandemic and trying to complete courses remotely can be stressful. Remember - you're not alone. If you feel that connecting to a spiritual or faith-based perspective might be what you need, Spiritual Affairs can help.
Members of our Multi-Faith Network team are available to support students through 1:1 phone calls or video meetings. As well, we have compiled a list of virtual services, prayers and resources that students can access online.
Exploring Spirituality Workshop Series
Facilitated by Johanna Hart, Coordinator of Spiritual Affairs. This participatory workshop series is designed for students who don't align with organized religion, but have an interest in exploring a personal approach to spirituality. We will spend time sharing stories, and exploring mindfulness, prayer, connection to place, music, and movement as tools for beginning or deepening a spiritual practice. This workshop series will take place over Zoom for the fall term. Students are expected to commit to all workshops in the series. There is no fee for participation.
The workshops will be held from 10:00 am-11:30 am on the following Thursdays: October 1st, October 15th, October 29th (reading week), November 12th, November 26th, and December 10th.
