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.

This virtual workshop series is designed for students who do not identify with any particular faith, 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. Students should be able to commit to all four workshops. Registration is required.
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.
A number of spaces are available for students to pray on campus.
