Description

 

 

As Chaplains, we jointly share a wealth of perspectives and approaches to our work. Accessing those ideas and resources is another matter, given the often isolated nature of our roles.

 

 

Our department meets monthly during the school year to bridge the distance between our campuses, offering a point of conversation and reflection on our practice and the shifting contexts in which we find ourselves. Sometimes we focus on how we manage our roles - how do we stay fresh and how do we balance priorities? Other times we turn our attention to what we do - what leads to a student driven experience and what fosters a sense of inclusion?

 

 

Feel free to drop into our meetings when you're able. Each one hour gathering is formatted as a stand alone discussion. We open with a brief check-in before engaging with the topic of the day. For anyone who wishes to gather ideas on an emergent situation unrelated to the topic, a few of us remain after the hour to offer support. We are, first and foremost, a gathering of colleagues.
