Multi-Faith Resource Team

The Multi-Faith Resource Team celebrates diversity, promotes understanding, encourages harmony and fosters spiritual growth at the University of Guelph. We are representatives from diverse faith communities, working collaboartively, and within our own faith traditions, to meet the religious and spiritual needs of the students, staff and faculty.  The Multi-Faith Resource Team explores 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.

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.
