Donate to the Faith and Spirituality Centre
The Faith & Spirituality Centre (FSC) endeavours to foster an inclusive and supportive community by offering a variety of spiritual and faith-based practices and by encouraging religious literacy, interfaith dialogue, cooperation and action as a critical part of the student experience at the University of Calgary. The FSC is open to engaging all viewpoints; regardless of belief, tradition, or spiritual outlook and including those that are questioning or seeking.
What We Offer
Education & Awareness
Religious literacy is a key component to living in a pluralistic society and the FSC provides opportunities to learn; to learn about oneself, others and religious/spiritual/secular traditions and viewpoints.
Community & Leadership
The FSC is a place for community, relationships and for developing one's understanding of their place within a community. We also provide opportunities for collaborative discussion and learning about living and engaging in a Canadian, democratic, secular and pluralistic society. The FSC provides opportunities to engage in critical thinking by exploring the relationship of religion and spirituality in the public sphere, interreligious and intercultural dialogue and cooperation and how we can build global citizens and leaders to create a better world for all.
The FSC collaborates with many different communities to ensure the availability of individual chaplains from a variety of religious and spiritual communities. Chaplains are here to provide spiritual/religious support and guidance and crisis support to students, staff and faculty regardless of their beliefs or outlook. Many chaplains also engage in building communal opportunities for gathering, worship, growth and reflection.
The FSC is a resource for students, staff and faculty with regards to spiritual and religious matters on campus, including religious accommodation and the development and provision of other religious and spiritual resources. The FSC also provides and manages spaces on campus for students to connect with self or others, pray, reflect or meditate.
