Cardiff University Multi-Faith Chaplaincy
Cardiff University Chaplaincy offers places of friendship, hospitality, prayer and support. The University Chaplaincy is comprised of Anglican, Catholic, Eastern Catholic, Methodist and Muslim chaplains. All chaplains are committed to working together to develop mutual respect, inclusion and diversity at the University. The Anglican Chaplaincy at 61, Park Place and the Catholic Chaplaincy at 62, Park Place offer opportunities for students to relax and to explore faith and spirituality. The various chaplaincies support individuals from all parts of the world regardless of their nationality or religion and are committed to encouraging discussion between students of different faiths, traditions and backgrounds.
The Anglican Chaplaincy at 61, Park Place is home to Anglican and Methodist chaplains, while the Catholic Chaplaincy at 62, Park Place is home to the resident Roman Catholic chaplain and also the Greek Catholic chaplain who ministers to Eastern and Orthodox Christians. The Muslim chaplains work out of Darul Isra Mosque 25, Wyeverne Rd. Cathays CF24 4IS. The mosque also has a library and an active social and pastoral outreach.
All chaplains understand and appreciate the diversity and importance of dialogue with individuals holding no explicit faith. All are welcomed to events hosted by the University Chaplaincy.
