Faith Communities

The Multi-Faith Resource Team works collaboartively, and within their own faith traditions, to explore questions of meaning, purpose, belonging and identity. 

As a diverse team, we all affirm the dignity  and worth of every individual, regardless of ethnicity, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, gender expression and identity. Together, we work to create positive spaces where all are afforded equal opportunity to thrive.  

Particular faith communities have the desire and capacity to serve as strong allies and create safe(r) faith spaces for the LGBTQ2IA+ community.  We welcome and encourage the participation and leadership of LGBTQ2IA+ individuals and hope to act as a support and link to local resources.  For more information about LGBTQ2IA+ affirming faith resources, contact Andrew Hyde at hydea@uoguelph.ca or 519-824-4120, ext. 52390.  

Unfortunately, not all faiths found on campus are represented among our Team. We welcome inquiries from everyone, regardless of your background, experience or spiritual practices. If you are looking to connect with an advisor in any of the areas mentioned below, please visit our Faith Advising page for more details.
