Pastoral Care aims to support your journey in life.

You can expect to have your questions, beliefs and feelings acknowledged and accepted. Pastoral Care at Griffith facilitates access to Chaplains at every Griffith campus, giving students of all cultural and religious backgrounds the opportunity to seek support. Pastoral Care also provides dedicated campus prayer rooms as well as information regarding local religious communities.

Talk with a chaplain

Chaplains are trained to listen to what you have to say, and they'll be able to either help you out themselves, or know where to send you to get things sorted. Chaplains are happy for you to say what you want, and talk about what you want to talk about. This could include:

  • how are things for you?
  • the meaning of life
  • questions about faith
  • how to live in this world
  • things that trouble us
  • Is it about religion?

    Chaplains can offer you spiritual support and direction, including ritual like prayer, or point you to someone who is conversant with your religious tradition to help you in this. They will talk about religion if you want to talk about religion, but if you don't talk about it, they won't either.

    To contact a Chaplain, you can make an appointment below or by phone. You can also subscribe to the Chaplaincy News email list.
