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

The McGill Office of Religious and Spiritual Life (formerly Chaplaincy) is your religious and spiritual hub on campus. We encourage students to carve out time during their busy university careers for spiritual exploration and whole-person wellness. We are dedicated to raising religious literacy about traditional world religions and newer religious movements. Our multi-faith team of volunteer chaplains helps connect students with their existing faith communities both on and off campus. We offer support to students of any religious identity or no particular religious identity who wish to find meaning beyond academics and to form healthy life habits that invite spiritual wellbeing, inner peace, and that equip them to live harmoniously in a pluralistic society.

Note: while we are physically located in the Student Services building of the downtown campus, our services extend to Mac Campus as well. If you are a Mac student who would like to see an event or service offered near you, please sara [dot] parksricker [at] mcgill [dot] ca (subject: Mac%20Students%20and%20MORSL) (let us know)!
