Chaplaincy Services

What is a chaplain?
A chaplain is a spiritual guide and support, primarily to students, but also to staff and faculty. Your chaplain will engage with any member of the college community in confidentiality, accepting their pre-existing spiritual values and beliefs while encouraging further spiritual thought and growth.

What does the chaplain do at Medicine Hat College?
Your chaplain is employed independently of the college, while working in collaboration with the college executive, the student engagement team, the Faculty Association, and the Students' Association, with the goal of enhanced quality of life for everyone on campus.
