Interfaith Chaplaincy - Prince George
Want to talk about your spiritual life?
Need a quiet place to pray or meditate?
CNC's interfaith Chaplaincy offers you a chance to do both!
The CNC Interfaith Chaplaincy has volunteer representation from various ministries in our community. Our Chaplains enjoy working together in an organized manner to provide spiritual resources for students and employees at the CNC Prince George campus. Our Chaplains will offer a listening ear, spiritual guidance, prayer, support and friendship to CNC students and employees. If you are interested in finding out more about a specific faith group in Prince George, one of our Chaplains will assist you in connecting with a group or place of worship.
You can arrange to meet privately with a Chaplain or chat with them when you see them around campus. If you have a specific Chaplain you would like to speak with, simply use their name as the subject in your email.
The Interfaith Chaplaincy also offers our students and employees a private place to pray or meditate. Situated on the first floor, near the cafeteria, the Multi Faith Prayer Room is located at Room 1-119
