Awakening an awareness of our primary identity and our primary purpose here on earth brings with it harmony through a deep sense of connectedness with each other and our environment.
With an open heart and mind, the CQUniversity Multi-faith Chaplaincy is an inclusive and welcoming space where students, staff and our wider communities are invited to explore through thoughtful reflection, worship and spiritual practices issues and values of importance to individuals, the University organisation, and wider communities.
We celebrate what we share in common and, in humility, celebrate our differences while at the same time recognising we are one human family. We will respect each person's spiritual journey and chosen faith tradition.
Through our activities, we aim to nurture harmony, peace and happiness in our world.
