Spiritual Wellness

Dalhousie Multifaith Services

Dalhousie Multifaith Services is a non-threatening space where students, staff, and faculty can address the basic questions of meaning and purpose in their lives — no matter what their faith, philosophy, or doubt may be.

The centre strives to explore the fundamental issues and concerns of the world from a religious perspective in a setting that encourages open and free discussion, values the raising of questions and doubts, and appreciates divergent histories, attitudes, options, and values. A complete education addresses the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.

***Please note that Multifaith Services will be closed from July 21 until August 1 to accommodate the move from Edward Street to University Avenue (Student Union Building).
