Mission Statement :
The Diocese has supported campus ministry for half a century and for this is respected by our National Church.
We support ministries on three campuses: Dal/Kings, Acadia, & St. Francis Xavier University, Dal/Kings is full time chaplaincy, and Acadia, & St. Francis Xavier are parish based ministries.
Campus ministry is about worship, pastoral counselling and programming. A special emphasis is put on social justice and ethics. If you wish more information or a personal contact with a campus minister, please use the following link below (Campus Ministers).
Programs and activities emanating from the chaplaincy center around worship, lecture series on current moral and ethical topics, retreats, social justice,etc.
