Rev. Tim McFarland, University Chaplain


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.
