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 embraces all religious and spiritual groups on campus, with the aim of fostering mutual respect and understanding among students.
Spiritual Support for Students during the Covid-19 Pandemic
Engaging in remote learning and exams can be stressful. Living through a pandemic situation 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.
Certain 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.
Feel free to email any of the following members of the Trent Multi-Faith Network to set up a zoom meeting or a phone call.
Terri Morrison (Buddhist)
If the faith perspective that you are seeking isn’t represented here, please email Johanna Hart, Coordinator of Spiritual Affairs at Trent.
