Late 2020 saw the introduction of new covid protocols at the University of Alberta, including the requirement of a downloadable Campus Ready Pass (as proof of full vaccination) to enter its campuses.
Since then, and throughout 2021, Chaplains have engaged in a mix of in-person and online ministry, following Provincial and University requirements.
Throughout the pandemic, Chaplains have continued to serve the university from a holistic perspective, addressing the spiritual needs of the university. It is our prayer that we may move forward into better and more effective ways to be vehicles of the loving and just movement of the Divine through this time of pandemic.
Thank you for your interest in our work.

Administrator Inter-Faith Chaplains’ Association at the University of Alberta (IFCA)
