“You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot. You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
Manning Memorial Chapel
Chaplaincy at Acadia University recognizes the importance of spiritual growth and maturity within the lives of students, staff, and faculty, as well as all who may join us from the broader community.
During each term there are services held each weekday. The morning services are held from 11:30am until 11:50am. On Wednesday evening at 6:30pm there is a Bible Study. Also during each term, there is a University Service held every Sunday night at 7:00pm. These services are Christian, which reflect both the heritage and ongoing Christian practice in the chapel. The services are ecumenical in nature.
In addition to the Christian services which take place in the chapel, the space welcomes the participation of different faith groups. The spirit of diversity in the midst of our community is vibrant within the chapel community. Many events, both sacred and secular take place within the chapel during each school year.
For those who seek counseling, the chaplain is available for specific appointments or may be reached via telephone, email or by dropping by one of the chapel offices. The offices are located in the Manning Memorial Chapel or in the Old Students’ Union Building.
