What is the Chaplain?

The Chaplaincy at St. Lawrence College, Kingston Campus, is available to all students and staff, regardless of denomination, faith tradition or spiritual conviction. The chaplaincy exists as a spiritual resource and source of encouragement and serves as an additional support for students and staff. The chaplain offers an opportunity for non-judgmental, confidential conversation, pastoral care and spiritual direction on any matters of concern, whether they are personal, practical or spiritual; sometimes just having someone to talk to helps.

Want to get involved?

If a student is seeking a place of worship, contact with or counsel from a specific faith group, the chaplain can provide assistance and information on all local faith communities and resources. You are invited to take part this year in furthering the building-up of one another by being a part of activities taking place on and off campus, sponsored by your faith community, and facilitated by your Chaplain, Cathleen Getchell, along with the many other volunteer leaders from the Kingston faith community.

The bulletin board outside the chaplain’s office is updated weekly with current news and upcoming events.
