Welcome to the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life! (MORSL)

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life (formerly Chaplaincy Service) is dedicated to raising religious literacy and enhancing spiritual wellness at McGill. We are a student service you can turn to whether you want to connect with others who share your own religious roots or explore new and diverse religious and philosophical frameworks. We have a team of inter-faith chaplains, who are available by appointment, and who host a wide variety of events. Chaplains are also available for those who might be seeking a listening ear from within particular traditions, and are sworn to confidentiality.

MORSL offers various spiritual, interfaith, and wellness-related programs to enhance your campus experience. We also hire several Work Study students each semester and have tons of volunteer opportunities as well.

Stop by and check out our study lounge and meditation/prayer space, which are open to all McGill students. The lounge has free fair-trade coffee, tea, and cookies for students, weekdays from 10am to 4pm. Drop in to study, meditate, listen to relaxation CD's, browse the in-house interfaith/wellness library, colour a mandala, or catch some happy rays in front of one of our light-therapy lamps. For those who keep kosher and bring a lunch to campus, we have two designated kosher-only microwaves - one meat, one dairy.

<<<<<<MORSL would like to remind everyone that we will be closing for June and July.>>>>>>>>>

The office will reopen on Monday, August 4th, and the on-site student facilities such as the meditation room and lounge will reopen Monday, August 25th. During our closure, weddings and memorials can still be booked directly through the Birks Chapel (ext. #4121). However, our email address morsl [at] mcgill [dot] ca and phone line (ext. #4104) will not be monitored during the summer. We wish everyone a restful and joyful season and look forward to enriching students’ religious and spiritual lives and raising religious literacy on campus again in the 2014/2014 school year!
